Dante Marioni
Yellow Pair

Decorated in the Louis 16th style of the late 18th century France, the Yellow Oval Room has numerous examples of French and English decorative arts. The intense color of Dante Marioni's two blown glass vases reinforces the name of the room. Their attenuated, classical forms are well suited to this formal drawing room for the President and his family.

Just beyond the window is the Truman balcony overlooking the south lawn, and in the distance stands the Washington monument.
