German Dolls and Parts!

I've just added LOTS of GORGEOUS antique German Dolls and parts to the site. Frozen Charlottes in SEVEN sizes, Frozen Charlies, Hand-painted German Doll heads and MORE! I'm completely enamored with these and didn't want to let them go, but I'm certain you'll give them good homes!
All excavated from the grounds of old German doll factories.
These beauties date back from 1880-1900!
Please note: some of them are in limited supply so get them now :).
You can find them all HERE!

The story of frozen Charlotte and frozen Charlie: It is said that these dolls were named after an old poem, which the author based on a story read in the newspaper. In the poem, dear Charlotte and Charles set off in a carriage to attend a New Year’s Eve ball. The night was frigid, and Charlotte’s mother begged her to put on a coat. The vain Charlotte refused as she didn’t want to wrinkle her dress. When they arrived to the ball, Charles extended his hand, only to find that she had frozen to death. The mourning Charles soon died of a broken heart.
In Germany, these small porcelain dolls were also baked into Christmas cakes and puddings. The lucky child who found the doll was entitled to a prize!
