With a nod to days gone by, the little Frozen Charlotte miniature doll necklace in bronze ~ antique doll jewelry. A wonderful whimsical wearable embellishment!
The original frozen charlotte miniature dolls were made of porcelain and introduced in the mid 1800's... just think, your great, great, great grandmother may have played with her very own little porcelain frozen charlotte doll!

The Frozen Charlotte miniature doll charm measures 1 1/8” in length and 3/8” in width and she is suspended on an antiqued brass rolo chain with a spring ring clasp... choose chain length or charm only at checkout. Other chains and lengths are available: https://www.etsy.com/shop/suegrayjewelry?section_id=6761412
She is photographed with her original porcelain self, not for sale, as well as an old US dime for reference to size.

The miniature Frozen Charlotte doll charm was made by making a mold of my original antique porcelain frozen Charlotte doll, which was made in 1860, and cast in solid bronze, then oxidized and polished to highlight her details.

The original Frozen Charlotte dolls were little one piece, not jointed (thus frozen), porcelain dolls made during the 19th and early 20th centuries and most were made in Germany. Their sizes ranged from 1” to 18” and the dolls were in a standing position and naked and children would make clothes for them to wear. The tiniest dolls were often used in doll houses and some were even hidden as charms in the Christmas puddings. Some dolls were made by glazing the front but not glazing the back so that they would float on their backs in the tub... bathing babies.
The 1” sized dolls were commonly known as "penny dolls" or “penny babies” because they generally sold for one cent. The popularity of Frozen Charlotte dolls can be attributed, in part, to the fact that their relatively low price allowed children to accumulate a collection of dolls with which to play.
