Frozen Charlotte is a name used to describe a specific form of china doll made from c. 1850 to c. 1920. The dolls had substantial popularity during the Victorian era.
The name of the doll originates from the American folk ballad Fair Charlotte, based on the poem "A Corpse Going to a Ball" by Seba Smith, which tells of a young girl called Charlotte who refused to wrap up warmly to go on a sleigh ride because she did not want to cover up her pretty dress; she froze to death during the journey.
They are also made in bisque, and can come in white, pink-tinted, or, more rarely, painted black. Some rare examples have moulded chemises. Male dolls (identified by their boyish hairstyles) are called Frozen Charlies.

Wilfrid Wood was born in Cheadle Hulme, south of Manchester. His mother was an artist and his father a cutler and surgical instrument maker. He was educated at Manchester Grammar School, leaving at 16. He then studied art at Manchester School of Art, and at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and the Slade School of Fine Art in London.
During the First World War he enlisted in the Artists' Rifles and was commissioned in the Machine Gun Corps, serving in France & Flanders and Italy; he continued to sketch during his war service. He lived in Hampstead, London from 1920 to 1937 and in 1926 he created a series of posters for the London Underground.
On 3 March 1937 he married Margary Joan Beeby Kingsford (1883 - 1974), known as Joan, at the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields, London; she was a sister of Florence Kingsford Cockerell. They settled in the village of Barnack, near Stamford, in 1937 where he lived until his death.
