UNCOMMON 15" Blond Frozen Charlie "Bathing Doll" with BLUE EYES
Here we have an uncommon Frozen Charlie, who's eager to head straight for your collection cabinet to join the doll family! Coming out of the American folk ballad "Fair Charlotte", and the source poem "A Corpse Going to a Ball", Charlie is the fiance of his beloved Frozen Charlotte. Charlie and Charlotte were on their way to the ball together in an open carriage, but Charlotte decided to leave her coat behind, unfortunately freezing in the brisk winter winds. Their love keeps them warm and together even now, though, as you need only to have these chunky-faced beauties side-by-side in your collection cabinet to keep them happy! This Frozen Charlie here is a nice 15" tall, making him one of the larger models of these bathing dolls. He has a nice slight pink tint to the face, which is a more uncommon style, and has rarer blond hair, and nice blue painted eyes -- all of these features are on the rarer side when it comes to Frozen Charlies, who usually have black hair and either brown or gray eyes. With a great condition, he is just fabulous! Don't hesitate to take this boy to your home!
***Yes, this doll is available on layaway! Feel free to call us at 718-859-0901 to talk about payment options and layaway terms.***
All-china Frozen Charlie, with a solid single-piece construction, with no movable parts. White glazed finish to body, while the face is a pink blushed tint, with painted features. Blushed cheeks. Blue painted eyes, and pink lips. Rarer blond painted and molded hair. Incised finger and toenails. Only the most minor specks here and there to the china, but not intruding on the face. Stands at 15" tall.
CONDITION: Excellent. No hairlines, cracks, chips, or restoration. Modeling and painting is excellent, with particular attention to details. The blond hair, blue eyes, and slight pink tint to the face are three features which are uncommon to the Frozen Charlies, which makes him a more desirable style. A few minor pepper specks here and there, and a microscopic rub or two to the cheeks, but he offers a great presentation. Overall, a great example of the Frozen Charlie!
