Up for consideration is this rare, all vinyl SHIRLEY TEMPLE 17 doll circa 1957. Her rooted Saran hair is a Honey-blonde color. The flirty eyes are Hazel color which also sleep. She is smiling showing upper teeth.
The facial color is still vibrant and the vinyl is free of any damage or discoloration. She has a very small pink dot on the back of the left leg. Looks as though it may have been a paint drop during the manufacturing process. I also noticed some small smudge marks on her back.She wears her "Stand Up & Cheer" blue, polka-dotted dress. Dress is waist cut with short, puffed sleeves. The bodice and hemline are trimmed in blue. There is also a white half-slip and white panties. She also wears white nylon socks with black Mary-Jane style shoes. Dress is tagged as a Shirley Temple. Comes with a black vinyl carrying case with 6 vintage curlers inside.
She still wears the original net with hair pins over her hair. She is in excellent used condition.Doesn't look like she has been played with. One thing I did notice was that her hair ribbon has discolored over the years and the dress has very slight yellowing in spots. But hey, she's 63 yrs. Please see photos as they show details much better.
She is marked on the back of the torso: Ideal Doll / ST-17-1. This is an all original doll with her original box and hang tag.Box shows light storage wear and tear at one end. According to my Shirley Temple resource book, this doll was the first vinyl Shirley doll offered in the 1957 Sears Christmas Book. She will come with a doll stand. So please examine the photos to be sure the item is what you want. If I miss something, its unintentional. I will do the same for you in return. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
