This listing is for a Gorgeous 20 Early 1930's Composition Shirley Temple Doll. I just restrung her so I could attempt to photograph the tag(last picture). Her wig is awesome and has the bias tape edge. Her eyes are wonderful and I believe them to be tin litho. She has real upper lashes and painted brows and lower lashes.Her composition and paint is beautiful, blushed at the tops of her hands and knees/elbows with very nice facial paint and cute dimples. The only flaws I've found on this doll are some paint rubs at her joints, a thin paint fracture in the left shoulder and some marks on the forehead hidden by her hair.
She also has some marks at the waist (from a doll stand). This particular doll belonged to her Mother. Her Mother would have been a pre-teen at the time she acquired the doll, so it didn't get played with a whole lot.
The only other information I have on this Shirley is that the original owner had the doll's hair restyled and a reproduction dress made in the early 1990s. The original dress was not with the doll, but the original combination panties/slip was. I did mend and attempted to remove a couple of stains on the bodice.In addition to the reproduction (white with faded lavender polka dots) stand up and cheer dress, the doll comes with a sweet blouse and plaid skirt with suspenders, yellow sweater and tam hat, a pink shoulder bag and a pretty green organdy party dress. I have a vintage doll robe in a different listing that I believe was hers as well. She has rayon socks and black Mary Jane style shoes. The strap on the right shoe has broken off, but it tucks in nicely and isn't that noticeable. Her hair style has been held in place with a light nearly invisible hairnet. The curls are soft and lovely. I've tried to describe this doll to the best of my ability. Please feel free to ask questions if I've failed to provide you information that's important to you. I'm confident that this doll would be a delightful addition to any collection.
