Byers' Choice Specialty Characters Baboushka Caroler #340B by Joyce Byers.
Byers' Choice Baboushka is masterfully hand sculpted and painted with a beautifully expressive clay face.
Baboushka is a traditional Russian Christmas figure who distributes presents to children. Legend is told that she declined to go with the Wise Men to see Jesus because of the cold weather. However, she regretted not going and set off to try and catch up, filling her basket with presents. She never found Jesus, and that is why she visits each house, leaving toys for good children.
Byers' Choice Carolers have represented an American made Christmas Tradition for over 40 years.
Stands 13 inches Tall. Made by hand in Chalfont, PA.
Byers' Choice Carolers are varied and one of kind pieces, handmade in the USA. Clothing styles, hair and eye color, and accessories may vary.
