Large antique frozen charlotte doll, pink tint head, 16 inches. This large pink tint head doll has beautifully painted facial features with blonde hair, blue eyes and rosy cheeks. His short swirling blonde hair probably makes this all bisque a Charlie instead of a Charlotte but I’ve chosen to use the more familiar Charlotte name for the title. His face has a light pink tint while his body is white. His blue eyes have a central pupil with alternating lines of dark and light blue radiating out. His upper eye outline is black while his lower eye is outlined in grey. He has an additional grey line above his eye. He has a tiny red accent in the corner of his eye. His mouth consists of a straight red line with two separate red ovals above and one large red oval below.
His legs are separated and his arms are extended. He can stand by himself on his own feet. He is steady on his feet but he will wobble forward if he is rocked. His hands are cupped in front with his thumb resting on top of his forefinger. His nails are outlined on both hands and feet. He has an air-hole on his backside. There is a firing flaw on the inside of his right arm. He has a brown spot on the back of his head. There are a few inherent specks in his bisque as to be expected. No chips or repairs.
