    The entire Hotch Potch alphabet, spelled out in the contortions of 18th-century dancing masters, brightens this distinctly colonial tote bag. Based on an original print in the collections of Colonial Williamsburg, our canvas tote features twelve Hotch Potch characters on front and twelve on back. Following the custom of the times, the original print has only 24 letters. "J" and "U" are missing as many people continued to use "I" and "V," respectively. 17"x 14"x 6"

    In addition to the letter-shaped characters, the bag's artwork includes the text of the museum inspiration. With sturdy construction and an eye-catching colonial design, it's the perfect way to grab your things and go on a tour through the Historic Area.
    Children's toys of the 18th century were often intended to instruct as well as to entertain young ladies and gentlemen. The Comical Hotch-Potch of the Alphabet turn'd Posture-Master was first printed in London in 1782 by well-known publisher Carrington Bowles. An original example of the print is in the Colonial Williamsburg print collection.
