A sweet frozen Charlotte china doll. Dating from the late Victorian era, the doll stands with extended arms. Painted gold slipper shoes and ribbon painted around the knee to suggest her stockings. She stand 4-1/4" tall with a well defined face and body.
Although not marked, my guess she is probably German. Her purple and lace dress is home sewn, made to fit. A fashionable dress of the time period, the bodice is gathered at the neck line with poufs over the open lace draped sleeves. Skirt is pleated with wide panel at the front, and lace over skirt.
Even though the style is delightful, the quality of sewing is more simple done.
Condition: I found no breaks, nicks or loss of limbs. The painted surfaces are in good condition. She does have roughness on the back of her buttocks and back of head. In reading I find this is a common occurrence.
The purple of her dress is silk so you will find shredding.
