Hey all! I've been helping a coworker go through decades of stuff she's collected & inherited, and am having a blast learning new stuff about all kinds of old things. :)
She has a GORGEOUS Frozen Charlie boy doll, which I've come to learn was a Victorian-era porcelain bathing doll intended for children to play with in the bath, based on the old folk tale about the girl who froze to death on a carriage ride because she didn't want anything to cover up her beautiful dress. I can't imagine a child taking such a fragile thing into the tub and clanking it around! My friend has decided it's finally time to let it go, so I figured I'd try to showcase it around in case it sparks an interest.
From what I've researched, the dolls were usually sold nude, but this little guy has actually been sewn into some amazing old clothing, which is still in great shape for being... what... 100 years old... 150 years old maybe? Wow...
Anyway, he's on eBay... we've got him priced competitively against the same dolls in the same condition... I've seen way cheaper ones with chipped toes and fingers... this guy doesn't have a scratch or chip on him! We are taking offers, so don't be afraid to throw your hat in the ring if you have an interest in this fantastic old piece.
Thanks for listening!
