Delia Robinson
Tiny Whistle Dolls
2008
Pottery Ocarinas
2" to 2 1/2" tall
Each of these unusual babies sings two high, birdlike notes. In Victorian times, one piece unmovable dolls were called "Frozen Charlottes."

A ballad, popular at the time, tells the sad story of Frozen Charlotte. Vanity persuaded her to travel to a winter ball by open carriage without her coat. You see the result.

These dolls are earthenware or porcelain and cost $45 each because they are a VERY limited edition.
