THE OVAL OFFICE.
A full-scale facsimile of the Oval Office, measuring 27 x 31 feet, and 13 1/2 feet high, constructed of 8 large wooden panels that fasten together, two doors, shelves, and fireplace built-in, and dressed with a scale fine wood reproduction of the Resolute Desk, including the hinged panel with carved Presidential Seal, circular rug with Presidential Seal, gold executive flagpoles and flag, two off-white sofa couches, 4-drawer bureau, 2 side tables, 2 lamps, standing table, 4 replica presidential portraits (Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, and Kennedy), Childe Hassam Avenue in the Rain (replica), Frederick Remington Bronco Buster replica statue, grandfather clock, side desk chairs, drapery and bunting, and more [please contact department for a full list of contents], some normal wear from exhibition and use, but overall in presentable, exhibition worthy condition.

FULL-SCALE, EXHIBITION AND FILM SET WORTHY REPRODUCTION OF THE MODERN OVAL OFFICE, with set dressings and furniture for a complete exhibition, but constructed in pieces so it can be easily customized and tweaked for different uses. The Oval Office includes all furnishings and accoutrements necessary to complete a realistic full-scale reproduction, from a replica of the Resolute Desk, with hinged panel carved with the executive seal, couches, down to the end-tables, wall portraits, a reproduction of Childe Hassam's Avenue in the Rain, which has hung in the Oval Office since Bill Clinton's tenure, as well as a bronco sculpture evocative of Remington's Bronco Buster. The attention to detail is astounding, down to the wood in the fireplace, supplied window backdrops revealing the White House gardens, and a facsimile of JFK's rocker designed by the same company who produced the originals.

In 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt first constructed a "temporary Executive Office building" to give the President a location separate from the residence at the White House in order to work from. Roosevelt's executive office was a standard rectangular structure. Under President William Taft, the West Wing was extensively
expanded and remodeled and the Executive Office moved to the center of the south side, modeling the President as the center of the administration. When the West Wing was largely destroyed by fire in 1929, President Herbert Hoover rebuilt in nearly the same location.

It was President Franklin D. Roosevelt who created the modern Oval Office in 1934. He again extensively remodeled the structure to accommodate an increase in staff, and moved the Oval Office to the Southeastern corner, allowing him easier access from the residences, and where it still stands today.

Jim Warlick's Oval Office exhibition has appeared on SNL, The Today Show, the cover of Alec Baldwin's You Can't Spell America Without Me, as well as the numerous party conventions, inaugural events. A wonderful set or exhibition piece, designed and outfitted with an
incredible eye for detail. Or set it up in your large basement and entertain your friends. A perfect opportunity for Work From Home.

Consignor will provide instruction and assistance for set up and breakdown.
