Impressed with history!

*The original Frozen Charlotte dolls were one piece, un-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.

Frequently asked questions about suegrayjewelry

Unsure of the size of a wax seal charm? I've included measurements in both inches and millimeters for every charm, as well as included a photo with the charm next to an old US dime, which is the same size as todays dimes.
Many of these wonderful wax seal charms are very small and I'm often asked if I can make them bigger.
I cannot make the wax seal charms larger - the charms can only be the size of the wax seal from which they are stamped in the silver.
Sorry, but I don't engrave my wax seal charms - I don't have the equipment or the experience to do so.
It's a lovely idea so perhaps your local jeweler can do the engraving for you.
Packages are shipped with tracking and insurance and most country's postal services can track your package.

If an item is lost in the mail please contact me so that I may file an insurance claim:

This is etsy's official policy for insurance claims.
The wax seal charms have been oxidized, a process which antiques/ blackens the low areas on the charm, giving it contrast instead of being completely shiny.

If the high areas begin to tarnish and you’d like them shiny again, gently rub a silver polishing cloth over the area to be shined.



This polishing pad works great: ps://www.etsy.com/listing/82422231/silver-polishing-pad-for-wax-seal?
