    A German "Frozen Charlotte" doll with painted black hair. The face has pink cheeks, red lips, and black eyes. The doll is enclosed in a pink cloth pouch adorned with attached green flowers. The doll also has imprinted shoes or booties. The name "Frozen Charlotte" is derived from the Vermont folk ballad "Fair Charlotte" which is about a young, beautiful bride who dies of exposure during a riding home with her husband on a cold winter's night. The ballad's popularity caused the name to be given to the unjointed china and stone bisque dolls, made in Germany from 1860-1900. This doll is also a good example of the German domination over the doll market during this time.
