Frozen Charlotte

 It's been ages since I made a treasury, so it was high time that I did. What better subject for a cold winter's day but Frozen Charlotte?

Frozen Charlotte is a name used to describe a specific form of china doll made from c. 1850 to c. 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 sleigh ride and froze to death during the journey.
