Bring the 18th century home to the 21st century through new WILLIAMSBURG® holiday introductions

Inspired by the 18th century and adapted for the 21st
century, the WILLIAMSBURG® Products Program’s new holiday
introductions make great gifts or decorative accessories for the home.


The young lady in your life would enjoy meeting Colleen, the newest Madame
Alexander Doll to join Colonial Williamsburg’s family of products, under
the tree this year. Outfitted for a stroll around town, Colleen reflects
the less formal side of 18th-century elegance. This limited
edition doll is a WILLIAMSBURG® exclusive.


Better still, your little girl can feel like a princess in her own dress–matching
Colleen’s–with a ruffled eyelet neckline, high waist and eyelet-trimmed
bell sleeves complete with tiny bows and five buttons down the back. This
beautiful outfit is perfect for tea parties and other special occasions.


Buy our two Byers’ Choice® carolers for friends and relatives–or
keep them for yourself. Exclusive to WILLIAMSBURG®, the holiday gentleman
hauls in the Yule log, which he will light to banish the woes of the old
year and bring good fortune for the next. His companion, the lady in red,
carries a gleaming cone of apples, ready to set the stage for a true Williamsburg®
Christmas. Her clothes are undeniably festive—a green toile gown with
a satin striped underdress, all wrapped up in a vivid red cape.


Create your own version of Colonial Williamsburg with Lang porcelain
houses and figurines. Each porcelain house is crafted in meticulous detail
and can be lit from within to cast a magical glow. Four new collectors’
items have been made available this year–Colonial Williamsburg’s
Courthouse, the Dubois Grocer, a set of three strolling men and a set
of three strolling women.


An appliquéd quilt provides holiday charm with year-round appeal.
The quilt and accessories are based on a delightful design dreamed up
by Addie Thayer Adams before her 1872 wedding. The original quilt is part
of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum collection at Colonial
Williamsburg. The quilt comes in twin, full/queen and king sizes with
standard shams and a decorative pillow.


Start a new tradition with Christmas stockings inspired by materials
found in Colonial Williamsburg’s holiday decorations. The stockings feature
two eye-catching designs–laurel, boxwood and holly, and nandina berries,
mistletoe and white pine. These fully lined stockings, made of pure wool
needlepoint, are backed and trimmed with red velvet.
