Frozen Charlotte Necklace

The story behind the frozen Charlotte:

This white porcelain doll was manufactured in Germany in the 1850s and was sold as the perfect playmate for baby's bath time. However, it became associated with a popular song of the day written by Seba Smith in 1840. The song, based on an article that appeared in the New York Observer, recounted a grim tale of a young woman who had frozen to death while riding with her sweetheart in a carriage to a New Year's Eve ball. After this, these dolls became known as frozen Charlottes. The dolls were sold in small coffins, and baked into puddings and cakes.

This one of a kind multi-strand necklace is 15 1/2 inches long with a 3 inch extender. The doll is an antique and not a reproduction. The doll's dress is made from a vintage blue art deco necklace.

Price is $99. Includes shipping within US and Canada.
