When originally constructed in the 1880s, the immense floor of the rotunda of the Texas State Capitol was completed in high Victorian style, featuring an design of colored glass blocks inset with a metal grid. During the Texas Centennial in 1936, the glass flooring was replaced a breathtaking terrazzo mosaic which incorporates the Lone Star seal of the Republic of Texas as well as the seals of the other nations whose flags have flown over Texas: Spain, France, Mexico, the Confederate States, and the United States of America. The design reflects the Art Deco style of the period. Thirteenth in the much-loved series of annual Texas Capitol Ornaments, our 2008 ornament captures all of the exuberance and pride of the rotunda’s floor design. Featuring 24-karat gold overlay and a gold ribbon for hanging, it’s perfect for giving in a specially designed velvet-lined box. All proceeds support continued preservation of the Texas State Capitol and educational projects. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in USA.
