Capitol Dome Lighted Ornament

Item #: 800115 In Stock


Our collectible ornament showcases the splendor of the Texas State Capitol dome, complete with the Goddess of Liberty at the top. Designed by Elijah E. Myers in 1881, the Texas State Capitol completed construction in 1888 and was billed as the seventh largest building in the world at the time. Originally set to be constructed entirely out of hill country limestone, the designers quickly learned that the limestone would develop rust colored stains when exposed to the elements. When the owners of Granite Mountain, a quarry town near Marble Falls, heard of the problem they donated all of the sunset red granite needed to cover the limestone free of charge to complete the Capitol building. The result is a building largely build of hill country limestone and covered in sunset red granite, which is much more resistant to corrosion. The first entry in the Capitol Illuminated series of ornaments, which compliments the long running annual Texas Capitol Ornament Collection, commemorates the Capitol dome and is finished in 24-karat gold with a replaceable LED light which will make your tree shine! Estimated battery life is 100 hours, replacement bulbs sold separately. 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.


2 1/" x 4"
LED Light is battery operated, estimated battery life is 100 hours, replacement bulbs sold separately. Manual on/off switch located on the bottom of the ornament.
