ORIGINAL 1930s IDEAL 18 Shirley Temple Doll in Tagged Dress w Button. Her neck is marked under the wig but I didn't want to hurt the wig lifting it to see the mark. But I think the mark says. SHIRLEY TEMPLE'COP IDEAL N & T.
Her back is marked "Shirley Temple" with no number. Her arms are marked 18.
Shirley stands an adorable 18 inches high. And wears a soft pink tinted pleated dancing dress.With ribbons that tie around her wrist. The classic dancing dress has a beautiful bib. With delicate embroidery pieces in various colors. She wears her original onesie undergarment that shoes no tears or holes. But does not have any piece to fasten the back.
She wears her original rayon socks with pink stripes. And oilcloth shoes that have their soles in tact. One shoe is a replacement they don't match - see images. Her socks have no holes and she has all ten lovely toes.
Shirley has 6 teeth in her smile and dimples in both cheeks. Her blushing beautiful rosy color appears in her cheeks, her hands, and her knees.
Her composition is almost pristine with very little crazing or cracks to be found. Just look at her face closely!! Her eyes open and close and she has full eyelashes. Her eye color has begun to crystallize though. And could use a touch up paint if you find yourself able to do that sort of thing.
Her left eye seems to have less than the right eye. But you might not notice unless you look very closely.
Note: Past home environment is unknown. Slight odor of storage in her hair. Please feel free to ask questions or request an additional photo.
I pack my dolls very carefully. She will have tissue around her and then the bubble wrap. I will make sure her shoes do not come off.
I will pack to support the gown's skirt as well as I can. She will be positioned laying straight facing down to protect her eyes. I will label the box which side should be up.To help postal workers handle the box well and keep her facing down as much as possible. She will have cushioning on all sides and stationed to prevent movement. On the size and weight of the box. That I have currently prepared. If you make additional packaging request. Therefore I require any special packaging requests. Be sent to me BEFORE you pay.
