Ceramic Bread Warmer
The design of this ceramic bread warmer is based on a plaque included in The Story of Virginia exhibition. The woman depicted is Nelly Custis, the adopted daughter of George Washington. The inscription reads: "The Virginia women are tall, slender, and have much more personality than other American women." —Ferdinand Bayard, A French Traveler, 1791."
