"Frozen Charlottes" turn up in my digs every so often but haven't found many recently. Very popular in the 1870s-1900s.

Are they a real thing? I mean I have heard that term used by multiple diggers. Frozen because they are not posable. Why Charlotte's?

Around here (Iowa) we call them "pillar dolls." Dug a lot of those in privies, mostly broken/trash. Have dug a few intact ones though, which lend credence to speculation that the outhouse also occasionally served as playhouse...and some dolls were (tragically) lost in the process. It's always fun to find those and unlock one's imagination. My collection includes many legs and arms, quite a few heads or head & body pieces. Such treasures speak to us.
