Liberty the Cat Ornament

SKU 28869

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.
