To help light walkways on the U.S. Capitol Grounds, Frederick Law Olmsted designed and constructed bronze and glass lanterns, installed between 1882 and 1894. The collectible 2022 Congressional Holiday Ornament depicts the side of an historic West Front lantern, embossed with detailing found on the original, framing a view of the Capitol against a snowy winter sky. The ornament is embellished with holly sprigs and a bright red bow.
