From the Charles F. Green family. No further history noted.
Frozen Charlotte dolls were popular beginning in the nineteenth century. The name probably originated from Fair Charlotte, a woman who freezes to death in a William Lorenzo Carter folk ballad. The dolls were usually 1-4 inches tall and sold for a penny (making them known as "penny dolls"). The originals were made of composition or porcelain.
