Byers' Choice Historical Collection Teddy Roosevelt #ZBC89 by Joyce Byers.
Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States and an avowed environmentalist, banned Christmas trees from the White House during his presidency. The president was against real Christmas trees because he feared that Christmas trees would lead to deforestation.
As it turned out, the Roosevelts did have at least one tree, courtesy of their eight-year-old son Archie. On Christmas morning 1902, Archie surprised his family with a tree that he hid in a large closet!
Byers' Choice Teddy Rossevelt is masterfully hand sculpted and painted with a beautifully expressive clay face.

Stands 13 inches Tall. Made by hand in Chalfont, PA.
