SHIRLEY TEMPLE 1930's COMPOSITE DOLL 22. Why not treat yourself or surprise a special someone in your life? This 1930s Shirley Temple doll is marked "Shirley Temple" on the back of her neck and "Shirley Temple" on her back.
She is a used, played with doll. Shirley Temple has an open-mouth smile, so you can see her adorable little teeth. Her wig may have been replaced, even though it looks very old. Her legs and arms are crazed, but her torso is not, though there is a small crack about a half inch long from her right leg socket and the paint has chipped/rubbed in a few places.She is somewhat loosely strung and would benefit from tightening. She has damage to her left foot. It looks like the front part of her foot has been glued back on and there is chipping at her heel. Her right foot has paint rubs and discoloration. Her hands are crazed and have a few dings.
Her face is in good shape, still shiny with very minimal crazing. There is paint chipping and perhaps an attempted touch up at her neck region on the front and back. Most Shirley's of this age seem to develop cloudy eyes over time, this one looks to have been painted over on the pupil and iris area (not a bad job, my thought is more desirable than a clouded over glass eye). This is how we acquired her. I expect that this could be quite easily removed with a solvent to restore the original look should you prefer.There are a few lashes missing from her left eyelid. The dress Shirley is wearing is not vintage, but it sure looks great on her. She is wearing white shoes marked Reliable Made in Canada.
The photographs will provide you with an excellent idea of the dolls condition. She is an adorable, appealing doll. Shirley Temple would make an excellent, historical addition to your doll collection or as a gift for someone special!
