The Apple Cone


“Colonial Williamsburg has long been known for its elegant cone decorations, most especially for the apple cone.  This way of arranging fruit has been popular for many years.” There is an early Dutch print in existance showing cone arrangements at a seventeenth-century banquet in London for Charles II .  “Now instead of using solid fruit or cookie cones on the dinning table as part of a course, ours are purely decorative”  excerpts from Christmas Decorations from Williamsburg.

Here is my version of the apple cone shown in front Historic replica stencils originally created by Moses Eaton, that I painted in my breezeway.
