Vintage 1930's Ideal Shirley Temple Doll 18. This belonged to a friend who was born in 1932. It was her doll as a toddler. It includes handmade clothing (by her mother) of 3 dresses, 2 coats, and 1 nightgown.
These were such popular dolls that there were sewing patterns made for this doll's clothing. This Doll is in very good condition!A vintage 18 Ideal jointed composition Shirley Temple doll - sleep eyes, blonde mohair wig appears original, hand painted lips and nostrils, clothing is appropriate and are all hand made, but please study photos. Shoes with bow tie closure and socks also appear original. "Shirley Temple" & "Ideal" on head and a faint "S" &"HI" &"18" on body (in raised letters). It almost looks like they started to put Shirley on the body. She displays well, but is not perfect.
Will hold a pose, but stringing is a little loose. Eyes have crystallized, composition is generally good, fairly smooth with some mild crazing when looking very close.There are crackings on the left leg:upper rear & lower front, inside inner leg sockets, inner upper left arm. Original mohair wig retains curls, has bobby-pins, could use some styling.
Shoes are rough, but still in tact. Hands and fingers good with no chipping. She needs a little TLC and will be a nice addition to any collection of C 1930s Shirley Temple dolls. Check out my "other items" for more collectables! I strive to maintain the highest level of.
