This SL Queen Charlotte puppet was part of a group of puppets called "special ladies and gentleman". They were created to be collectibles and were sold at the higher end department stores like Harrods and Hamleys in London. There is not an exact list of all the "special" puppets produced and fakes have been made. All the original ones were made from high quality fabrics and furs. Papers with their hand written names were pinned to the puppets bodies to identify who they were. The heads of these puppets were usually the Cinderella and Prince Charming heads, but others were used.
