Ready with a tray of food, a warm blanket, and perhaps a gentle song, this tavern woman caroler by Byers' Choice is the picture of 18th century hospitality. As a notice in the March 5, 1752 issue of the Virginia Gazette suggests, merriment and conviviality were specialties of the house at Wetherburn's Tavern in Williamsburg. Opposite the Raleigh Tavern on Duke of Gloucester Street, the establishment had become so popular that its proprietor had built an addition—a great room—to better accommodate his customers. With so many guests, this tavern woman would be very busy.

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.) 13"H
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.
