Ready to toast the season, this lovely woman carries a bottle of cider and a pitcher to sell and serve it. At autumn and winter holidays, festive American tables included all manner of drink, from fine wines to homemade cider. In Europe, where polluted waterways were a bigger problem, people substituted alcohol. It was an easy example for the colonists to follow. The first beverages of choice were cider and beer. Both were simple to make. For cider, the raw material, apples, was readily available. Apples gained longevity when pressed into cider or cooked into applesauce or apple butter. John Adams was known to begin his days with a draft of hard cider.

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
Autumn arrives in Williamsburg on a timeless breeze—with a thrilling chill, the smoky aroma of wood-burning fires, and a train of gold, rust, and brown leaves dancing along brick walkways. It's as busy a season today as in the 18th century, when countryside planters undertook the demands of readying their tobacco for market, and townsfolk prepared taverns, shops, and residences to receive travelers coming for General Court and General Assembly sessions.
