Paul Revere's Ride Ornament

"Listen, my children, and you shall hear
of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.."

In the Museum's collection is a handwritten copy of "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. This ornament is perfect for American History enthusiasts and New England natives. 

St. Nicolas specializes in bespoke handmade hanging decorations. For over 25 years, they worked with a small charity in Thailand that helps disadvantaged rural women find work in their community, rather than having to leave home. Today, some 200 skilled women work at home hand sewing the decorations and many have been doing so for more than ten years! 

As their business grew, more innovative designs were needed, so they began working with a partner in India. The Indian-made ornaments use the traditional method of zardozi embroidery, an intricate sewing technique that was developed to embellish courtly robes with gold wires and jewels. Zardozi work is rare, but because of the skill that is needed to create the ornaments, it continues to be handed down from generation to generation.
