For those of you upset about when the china showed up: Hillary waited until 2000, her last year in the White House, to order new White House china. I've read that Laura Bush ordered her new china a while ago but I have no specifics on how long ago it was.

From what I've read, most new White House china is based on another president's china. This is what I found concerning the new Bush china:

"The porcelain place setting service features a green basket weave border based on a French dinner service believed to have been owned by James and Dolley Madison. The dessert plates replicate a laurel wreath found on the Madison’s Parisian c.1799-1805 dinner plates. The serving plates and the rim of other pieces also feature an eagle emblem inspired by an American Bald Eagle inlay found on the center drawer of the Massachusetts sideboard, believed to have been owned by Daniel Webster."
