Dressed in her finest winter velvet, this colonial holiday girl caroler holds a festive holiday fruit wreath. Her attire includes a green velvet gown and sash and a red velvet (capelet) cloak clasped with a holly accent. The wreath she carries represents the handmade natural decorations that adorn Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area throughout the holiday season.
Perhaps this Byers' Choice® girl is on her way to the Christmas service at Bruton Parish Church. Early Virginians celebrated the season with food, fellowship and song. In the company of family and friends, hey sang popular English carols and hymns, including some we would recognize today, such as "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," "Coventry Carol," and "Joy to the World."
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.)
