    This collectable Byers' Choice® boy carries a basket full of holly to decorate for the upcoming season. Christmas decorations in 18th-century Williamsburg consisted of whatever natural materials looked attractive at the bleakest time of year. As a symbol of eternal life, evergreens would be laced along railings and banisters or across mantels. They would frequently include pine, ivy, holly, and New World discoveries such as mountain laurel. Cheerful sprigs of greens might also be seen wedged into windowpanes and clustered behind portraits and mirrors.

    Made in Pennsylvania, each Byers' Choice® figure is lovingly hand-detailed and dressed in period-inspired clothing. A wonderful Colonial Williamsburg memento! (For decorative use only; not meant to be used as a doll or toy.)
    As Virginia's colonial capital, Williamsburg was a crucible where people from different backgrounds shaped and were shaped by their encounters with one another. Those encounters helped forge our American values and eventually our very identity. From tavern keepers to artisans, gentry to slaves, politicians to plebeians, colonists in an array of apparel could be seen interacting during the hustle and bustle of town life. These hand-made figures capture the many ordinary and extraordinary activities that filled their days.
