Frozen Charlotte 

Hand Painted Frozen Charlotte Boy Doll, 16 cm.

These nostalgic dolls had substantial popularity during Victorian Times.

The name of the doll originates from the American folk song called Fair Charlotte, then based on the poem "A Corpse Going to a Ball" written by Seba Smith which tells of a young girl called Charlotte who refused to wrap up warmly to go on a sleigh ride because she did not want to cover up her pretty dress; she froze to death during the journey.  

The poem originated from a newspaper article, published 8 February 1840, that described the story of a woman that froze to death whilst traveling in a sleigh to a New Year's eve ball.
