Lady Martha Washington Caroler

SKU: 13248

Martha Dandridge Custis met Colonel Washington during the French and Indian War. The dashing 6 foot 2 officer certainly impressed the vivacious young widow, who was just over 5 feet tall. They were engaged to be married within a year. As America's first First Lady, Martha was known for her warm and gracious hospitality. Her Mount Vernon home was visited by thousands of people from all walks of life, many not expected but nearly all welcomed. For everyday use, the Washingtons ordered countless pieces of "blew and white" china richly decorated with hand-painted river scenes and other views of Chinese domestic life. The Lady Washington Byers' Choice Caroler is hand crafted in Pennsylvania, is approximately 12" tall.
