With a nod to days gone by, a little sterling silver Frozen Charlotte doll wearing her conical hat necklace pendant ... a Goody Charlotte necklace pendant ... historic whimsical doll jewelry.

Back in 17th century Puritan New England Goody was a way to address married older women of a lower social status.  It was paired with her surname, for example, Goody Gray with Goody being short for "Goodwife."  The men of the same social status were addressed "Goodman" and the terms Goody and Goodman denoted church membership, as those who belonged to the church were “good". 

Sadly, there were many "Goody's" in the court records during the horrific witch trials and many were executed.  What scary times they were!

- approximate measurement - 1 1/4" x 3/8” (30mm x 10mm)
- photographed with a US dime for scale
- doll and hat metal - sterling silver (.925 silver) 
- the sterling silver chains are sold separately here where you can select a shiny silver chain or a darkened oxidized chain in the length and style of your choice
- please note that she hangs a wee bit cockeyed ... I find it endearing but you can decide for yourself by viewing the 8th photo

Crafted by replicating an antique porcelain Frozen Charlotte doll that dates back to 1860 and a little witch hat that I first carved from a chunk of wax and had cast into sterling silver.

This is a limited release in 2021, with only a few available - I only have a few of the little witch hats made - and at the end of October, or sooner, they disappear until next year.  I wish I had the time to make a little black cape for her.

Impressed with history!

*The original Frozen Charlotte dolls were one piece, un-jointed (thus frozen), porcelain dolls made during the 19th and early 20th centuries and most were made in Germany.
Their sizes ranged from 1” to 18” and the dolls were in a standing position and naked 
The popularity of Frozen Charlotte dolls can be attributed, in part, to the fact that their relatively low price allowed children to accumulate a collection of dolls with which to play.

More chains, charm catchers and swivel fobs are available here.
Frozen Charlotte is also available in bronze.

And take a peek at our new Frozen Charlotte ring.
