Diplomatic gifts frequently bear references to a country’s national symbols or flora and fauna. This Steuben vase is engraved with the flags of the United Kingdom and the United States of America, as well as the two nations’ national animals: the lion and eagle. It was presented to The Queen by the President of the United States of America, George W. Bush, and Mrs Laura Bush for her Golden Jubilee in 2002.
