GENERAL INFORMATION.  Baston's aim with his first set of eight historical pairs was to represent all sections of the early United States.  Williamsburg, VA was settled in 1632, an outgrowth of Jamestown (1607) and paralleling the development of the Massachusetts Bay Colony (1628), itself an outgrowth of Plymouth Plantation (1620).
     With restoration (begun in 1926 with the financial support of John D. Rockefeller, Jr.) not complete, the official Williamsburg gift shop purchased hundreds of the Williamsburg Sebastians every year and since the renewal of Sebastian interest in 1976, continued as an important Sebastian dealer.  The two designs were unified in 1958 to the present Williamsburg Couple (SML-285).

From Dr. Glenn Johnson's book, The Sebastian Miniature Collection.
