Frozen Charlie Antique China Doll

Here is a so-called "Frozen Charlie" antique doll, about 10" tall, getting ready for his bath. He has a brushstroke hairline and tinted head with blue eyes. According to Linda Edwards in her book "Doll Values," most porcelain factories made china and bisque dolls in one-piece molds with molded or painted black or blond hair, and usually undressed. Sometimes called Bathing Dolls or Badekinder, they were dubbed "Frozen Charlotte" from a song about a girl who went dancing dressed lightly and froze in the snow. They range in size from under 1" to over 19". Some were reproduced in Germany in the 1970's to the present. Those with pink tint or extra decoration or special hairdo's are more valuable.
