This ornament features 18th century author Jane Austen, holding a quill and a manuscript. Austen was born in 1775; she authored several major novels, many published posthumously, after her death is 1817.
To borrow from Jane herself, "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single person in possession of a Christmas tree, must be in want of ornaments."
