Very Early Pink Tint Frozen Charlotte #187-23 SOLD

Status: Sold
Description:
What a fantastic, very early pink tint Frozen Charlotte doll, made in Germany c. 1855. Although she is small, 2" high, the detailing on her is magnificent with black molded side parted hair with curls that come forward onto her face. Even her breast area above her dress shows modeling--I have never seen this on any other Frozen Charlotte in this small size. Her body is extremely well formed with round belly, protruding buttocks and deep creases on her well formed chubby thighs. Her feet are very delicate and small and barefoot, a sign of a very early doll. She is porcelain, pink tint with fabulous facial features, very well executed and pronounced with rosy cheeks and rosebud mouth. Her dress looks to be original and would also be considered a work of art, especially being so tiny. The dress is a white background with tiny blue checks which have tiny blue dots to form a floral shape. The wide skirt has a silk ribbon hand stitched and her waiste is tied with an old velvet ribbon. The neckline is gathered and very low revealing her well-form shoulders and breastplate. She is so early that she was made from porcelain that was formed liked dough and hand pressed into the mold...solid porcelain, not hollow like later porcelain that was poured. For her size, she is quite heavy. The exquisite little girl is also pictured with a black Frozen Charlotte of the same era and a small ivory chair--all pieces are sold separately and are shown for size comparison.
