BLACK Americana Glazed Bisque RARE..."Frozen Charlotte" is a name used to describe a specific form of China Doll made from ca. 1850 to ca. 1920. The name comes from the American Folk Ballad "Fair Charlotte", which tells of a young girl called Charlotte who refused to wrap up warmly to go on a sleith ride and froze to death during the journey.

The Frozen Charlotte doll is made in the form of a standing, naked figure moulded all in one piece. These dolls may also be seen described as pillar dolls, solid chinas or bathing babies. The dolls ranged in size from under an inch to 18 inches plus. The smallest dolls were sometimes used as charms in Christmas puddings. Smaller sizes were very popular for putting in doll's houses. Occasionally versions are seen with a glazed china front and an unglazed stoneware back. This enabled the doll to float on its back when placed in a bath.

They are also made in bisque, and can come in white, pink-tinted, or, more rarely, painted BLACK.
