The Texas State Capitol was designed by Elijah E. Myers (1832-1909), a Detroit architect who also designed the capitol buildings of Michigan and Colorado. As in Michigan, Myers included a bank of beautiful acid-frosted glass skylights to admit sparkling natural light into the chambers of the Senate and House of Representatives. However, unlike in Michigan, the blazing Texas sun streaming through the skylights rendered the chambers all but unusable on warm days, and the skylights and decorative ceiling panels were blocked for decades. During the capitol restoration in the 1990s, the original design was restored using reproductions of the original Belgian-made panels. The graceful, elaborate designs reflect the French rococo style.

Eighteenth in the much-loved series of annual Texas Capitol Ornaments, our 2013 ornament celebrates light as part of the design of the Texas State Capitol. 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 the ongoing preservation and interpretation of the Texas Capitol as well as exhibitions and educational programming at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in USA.
