A tiny porcelain doll with a haunting history. Originally a German bath time novelty meant to float in the tub. Sweet right? That is until its arrival in the U.S. in the mid 1800's. The dolls arrival coincided with a popular morbid song. Yep, I said popular, morbid and song. In 1843 a poem by Seba Smith was published. A Corpse Going To A Ball. It described how on a very cold night a young lady named Charlotte refused to wear a blanket over her beautiful clothes. When she arrived at the Ball in the open sleigh she was frozen to death. It touched on the dangers of vanity and not listening to your parents. Set to music it became a HIT! American Bandstand watch out! A frozen charlotte with gold leaf wings and gold crown lay atop a little vintage mirror. A 36" chain is a blend of complementary vintage pieces. Floral bead rosary along with black beaded rosary pair well with the faux pearl vintage chain. A mother of pearl buckle used as a connector adds a clever touch.
