I had the pleasure of making @babavesterkatattoos this amazing poison ring, secretly commissioned by her partner @cowboysean666 ⚰
Inside the coffin is a Frozen Charlotte doll set with a blood red garnet. Charlotte dolls were originally made in Germany in 1850 as a bathtime toy but were soon associated with a popular poem by Seba Smith. The poem tells a grim tale about a young woman who froze to death on New Year's Eve whilst riding an open sleigh with her lover. .
“O, daughter dear,” her mother cried,
“This blanket ’round you fold;
It is a dreadful night tonight,
You’ll catch your death of cold.”
“O, nay! O, nay!” young Charlotte cried,
And she laughed like a gypsy queen;
“To ride in blankets muffled up,
I never would be seen.” .
What was a german bathtime toy became known as Frozen Charlotte!
Working on something with history behind it makes for a very enjoyable job 🖤
