Crafted by molding an antique porcelain Frozen Charlotte doll that dates back to 1860 to create a wax model and then carving a tiny little jack o'lantern in wax. Next was the sad job of removing her little head to add the little pumpkin head. It was then cast in sterling silver, as was Charlottes little head ... I suggest wearing the little doll head earrings with the pumpkin head Charlotte ... you know, kind of keep her parts together. :)
They're depicted in the 9th and last photos.

*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 and children would make clothes for them to wear.
The tiniest dolls were often used in doll houses and some were even hidden as charms in the Christmas puddings.
Some dolls were made by glazing the front but not glazing the back so that they would float on their backs in the tub... bathing babies.
The 1” sized dolls were commonly known as "penny dolls" or “penny babies” because they generally sold for one cent.
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.
