Dressed in his finest winter velvet, this colonial caroler holds a festive holiday pineapple surrounded by fruits and flowers. His red velvet breeches match a vest trimmed with gold embroidery, and a green velvet cape keeps him warm. The pineapple centerpiece he carries is an iconic holiday decoration associated with lavish feasts and celebrations in 18th-century Williamsburg.
Perhaps this Byers' Choice ® man is on his 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, they 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.)
