This extraordinary necklace is made from a large, 925 stamped sterling silver coffin pendant with a cross etching on its lid. This coffin opens to reveal a tiny Frozen Charlotte doll with praying hands inside. These miniature praying dolls are the rarest of the Frozen Charlotte dolls - part of a rare collection of porcelain bisque dolls excavated from the ruins of an old doll factory that operated between 1890 and 1913 in Thuringia, Germany. That makes them over 100 years old!

The name "Frozen Charlotte" comes from a song written in the mid 1800s about a young girl named Charlotte who, against her mother's wishes, went out to a winter ball without her shawl and froze to death from the cold. The song is based on a poem, which was written as a cautionary tale for young women, after the author read about more than one vain young girl who met their end in much the same way as Charlotte.

The coffin hangs from a lush velvet cord with a chain and lobster clasp closure. I have left all the original dirt on the doll for added charm (but you may clean it if desired).

Measurements:
Doll - Approx. 1" tall
Coffin - 1 3/4" long x 3/4" wide x 11mm tall
Neck cord - 16" long, w/ 2" extender
