ORIGINAL 1930s IDEAL Shirley Temple Doll in a STARBURST Dress with Button - so PRETTY! She stands 22 inches tall. She may need a doll stand to stand with balance. The dress is featured on page 31 of Tonya Bervaldi-Camaratta's book. The Complete Guide to Shirley Temple Dolls and Collectibles Identification & Value Guide.The dress is the green version of the pleated organdy starburst design. It is missing its tag and I could not find the remnant. The bib has a tear in the fabric hidden under the button. Probably from the movement of the button pin over time. Shirley has a faded pink ribbon on the front of her dress. That matches the ribbon in her hair. Her eyes open and close and she has full eyelashes. The whites of her yes are slightly yellowed.
Or not as white as they might have once been. Her face is so perfect - I had to get my reading glasses to see the faint crazing - it's almost invisible. She has two cute adorable dimples. And six teeth in her flirty friendly smile.
Her cheeks still have some rosy blush glow. Some of the same rosy blush still remains in her hands and knees. She wears her original onesie undergarment. That combines the skirted slip. The onesie has some tears in the seat - see images.
In the back of the undergarment the skirt is pulled away. From the onesie in a small section near the opening. Shirley is wearing cream colored rayon socks.
With her oilcloth shoes with a buckle design. Both shoes are in very good condition that still have soles on the bottom intact! Shirley has very little crazing or its very very light.
She does have a more visible crack on the back of her upper right thigh. I did not remove her socks because they seemed stuck to her feet.And I didn't want to create holes in them. See the image of the feet with the socks - I think you can see that she has all her toes. Slight odor in her hair possibly from long term storage. History of doll unknown but. Coming from recent stay in my smoke free home. Please feel free to ask questions or request an additional photo. No PO Boxes - Sorry. I pack my dolls very carefully. She will have tissue around her and then the bubble wrap. I will protect her facial features with extra padding. I will make sure her shoes do not come off. 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 packaging requests different than what I have described.
Be sent to me BEFORE you pay. If there are any problems. Please let me know so we can work it out. I hope whoever gets her enjoys this precious beauty. The item "ORIGINAL 1930s IDEAL 22 Shirley Temple Doll in STARBURST Dress w Button -PRETTY" is in sale since Monday, October 26, 2020.
