Offered is a handmade, Holiday Card Holder or Napkin Holder replica of The Norton Gale House in Colonial Williamsburg, VA, during the annual Christmas celebration. Notice the intricate detail of the greenery, fruit and brick stones.
Each year Colonial Williamsburg brings back the holiday celebrations during the Colonial ear. Homes are decorated with natural items found in America during that time.
According to the history of Colonial Williamsburg, the linking of fruited "della Robbia" wreaths during Christmas for front doors started during the early years of the last century in America's wealthier homes.
The beautiful pottery replica is marked on the back by the artist, Patti, and dated in 1986. The pottery is highly glazed except for the back.
The holder measures approximately 6" tall by 5 1?2" wide by 3 3/4" deep.
This piece appears in perfect condition, however either the artist made the greenery with sharp edges and it's hard to tell whether some of the edges or chipped or purposefully made that way (see image).
This replica provides for a beautiful memory of visiting Colonial Williamsburg during their annual holiday celebration spectacular which kicks off during the first week in December each year.
