During Christmastime at Mount Vernon, George Washington and his gentlemen contemporaries could often be seen participating in outdoor winter activities such as horseback riding and fox hunting. According to Thomas Jefferson, Washington was “the best horseman of his age, and the most graceful figure that could be seen on horseback”. The George Washington 3rd Edition Caroler is dressed in traditional 18th century winter attire in a warm black cloak with his riding crop in his hand.
Byers’ Choice carolers are hand-crafted in Pennsylvania. Caroler is approximately 12” tall.
