An excavated antique porcelain frozen charlotte doll, over 100 years old, copper electroplated with a little jacket on a wide band. Sealed.

One of a kind ring:) Adjustable size from approx 7 1/2 and up to about 10 comfortably

This listing is for one ring (other one is sold out)

These little dolls that were mass-produced in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

They were made in various styles and sizes, of bisque (unglazed ceramic), porcelain, metal, celluloid, terra cotta, ceramic, composition, wood, rubber and even molded sugar and soap.

The most popular types, known as Frozen Charlottes, were nude, immobile dolls with a bittersweet story associated with them: An old New England ballad written in 1865 tells of poor, vain Charlotte who, on a cold New Year's Eve, dashed out into the freezing night and climbed into an awaiting sleigh driven by her beau Charles who had come to take her to the ball. Because Charlotte (wanting to be seen) ignored her mother's pleas to take along a blanket to keep herself warm, she froze to death on the way to the ball. This caused great grief to her parents, and to Charles who so mourned her death that he died of a broken heart and was buried next to her.
