HISTORICAL GIFTS FOR SALE
Providence Center, responding to a call from the Historic Annapolis Foundation for unusual merchandise for its William Paca House Museum Shop, has produced three gift items for the shop: a checkerboard,a trivet and a serving tray. More items are in the planning stage.
The design on the checkerboard depicts the British and John Shaw flags of Annapolis during the Revolutionary War period. The British flag was carried during the war by troops of King George III. The Johns Shaw flag flew over the State House as a welcome to the president of the Continental Congress, which met in Annapolis from November 1783 to August 1784. The flag was fashioned by John Shaw, an Annapolitan renowned for his cabinetmaking.
The oak trivet reflects the Chinese trellis motifs seen by visitors to the William Paca House Garden, andthe tray features a print of the Historic District of Annapolis, highlighting the 18th-century buildings and the dock area.
Historic Annapolis Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and interpreting the historical and cultural heritage of Annapolis.
