Antique Frozen Charlotte China Doll HEADS Set of 3

 * You will receive THREE antique frozen Charlotte doll HEADS. I pictured several so you could see the variation. I will randomly select three heads for you. The sizes vary from about .5" - 1.5". Most of the heads are hollow with a hole in the neck, but some are not hollow. Breaks at the necks will vary. Some may have small age spots, but these add to the beauty.
* These little doll heads are great for jewelry, art dolls, and assemblage projects!
* Excavated from the grounds of an old German doll factory in Thuringia Germany. Buried treasure indeed!
* The story of frozen Charlotte and frozen Charlie: It is said that these dolls were named after an old poem, which the author based on a story read in the newspaper. In the poem, dear Charlotte and Charles set off in a carriage to attend a New Year’s Eve ball. The night was frigid, and Charlotte’s mother begged her to put on a coat. The vain Charlotte refused as she didn’t want to wrinkle her dress. When they arrived to the ball, Charles extended his hand, only to find that she had frozen to death. The mourning Charles soon died of a broken heart.

In Germany, these small porcelain dolls were also baked into Christmas cakes and puddings. The lucky child who found the doll was entitled to a prize
