Liberty the Cat Ornament
This handmade ornament, crafted exclusively for Mount Vernon, is one of the unique ornaments made by the British company St. Nicolas. St. Nicolas has worked with a small Christian charity in Thailand and India for 25 years helping disadvantaged rural women work in their own communities by sewing decorations at home.
Liberty is a fictional cat featured in the children's story "Where Was George Washington?" by Carla Heymsfeld, a book published by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. Liberty's popularity has grown so over the years that many people like to imagine that Liberty was a real cat who lived at Mount Vernon in George Washington's day.
“Liberty” is stamped on the back side of the ornament and a gold thread allows for easy display. Size is approximately 4” H x 3" W.
