NOTE: DRESS IS A FAR MORE VIVID PINK THAN SHOWN IN PHOTOS. Just The Perfect Thing for a Mom or Gramma who may have lost their beloved Shirley doll or may never have had one due to hard times. I gifted two daughters, ages 45 and 57 and a sister, age 78, with a Shirley doll and they were thrilled. Here she is, Shirley Temple, the world famous child film star of the 1930s.
This doll is the vinyl version made by the Ideal TOY CO. In the 1950s to satisfy the dreams of the little girls and their mamas during the 1950's era. This Beautiful little Shirley Temple doll is an original 15 inch doll produced by the Ideal Toy Corp.
She is made of vinyl and in beautiful condition. She is not mint from the box yet has no major flaws.
She is free of stains, odors, splits, or missing parts. Her golden blonde hair is styled in the famous "Shirley curls, " her vinyl is all one tone, her bright eyes open and close, and her make-up is bright and rosy.
Shirley wears an original pink nylon party dress by Ideal. It is styled with puffed sleeves, a square neck, and a very full skirt that ties in back in a big bow. Both the bodice and skirt have rows of white lace and black satin ribbon trim. The dress closes with two buttons in back.
It is, in my view, one of Shirley's prettiest party dresses. It is tagged and has no odors, holes or stains.Her accessories include a vintage crinoline, custom made, white socks, and Mary Jane shoes with floral toes, and white lace trimmed panties. Even if you are not a doll collector, the original Shirley Temple dolls are a wise investment. In the last few years, I've seen prices continue to escalate, and there doesn't seem to be an end to the increasing values.
So we pay a higher price than many other sellers and We sell our dolls at a moderate price. I make very little profit from my dolls.
Thanks for stopping by Abigael's Attic and enjoy shopping the'Bay, Abigael. TO OUR SHOPPERS: OUR DOLLS ARE NOT MINT. DOLLS IN MINT CONDITION ARE RARE AND COST MUCH MORE.
WE FIND OUR DOLLS IN BASEMENTS, ATTICS, AND DRAWERS, ETC. MOST HAVE SMALL ISSUES LIKE A LAZY EYE LID, A SMUDGE ON THE VINYL, SOME MAY HAVE A SLIGHT COLOR DIFFERENCE IN THE ARMS OR LEGS, OR EVEN SOME ROUGH SPOTS. IDEAL WAS ONE OF THE FIRST COMPANIES TO USE THE NEW VINYL AND IT WAS POROUS.THUS, THE DIFFICULTY IN REMOVING MINOR STAINS ETC. OUR SHIRLEYS WERE WELL LOVED AND "PLAYED WITH" BEFORE OWNERS PUT AWAY THEIR DOLLS AND GREW UP. WE CHOOSE OUR DOLLS CAREFULLY, THEN RESTORE THEM TO THEIR ORIGINAL BEAUTY AS CLOSE AS THEY CAN BE.
