2018 Ornament Moon Lake

“Saratoga Chip - Moon Lake House”

oon's Lake House was a restaurant on Saratoga Lake, built in 1853, and is the alleged birth place of the potato chip, a.k.a. the Saratoga Chip. According to legend, visiting restaurant patron Cornelius Vanderbilt was displeased with his friend potatoes and repeatedly sent the order back to the kitchen, claiing they were too thick. At first, Moon's Lake House chef, George Crum, attempted to appease the diner sending out even thinner potatoes. After several attempts, however, the insulted chef shaved the potatoes paper thin and fried them in oil. Instead of being offended, Vanderbilt loved the result, which became a house specialty, and so the Saratoga Chip was born! 

The twenty-third in a collectible series, the 2018 holiday ornament was created from artwork by Joseph Bell, M.D., a member of the Saratoga Hospital Medical Group and well-known community surgeon.

Each ornament is designed by a local artist and captures the spirit of Saratoga through the depiction of a historic place, building, statue, or iconic area or pastime. Proceeds support the Cancer Patient Fund of Saratoga Hospital. 

Price is $15.00 each or $10 each for orders of 20 or more. The entire collection of 23 ornaments may be ordered for $220! Ornaments are 24k gold on brass. Limited quantities of past ornaments are also available.
