Vintage 1936 Ideal Shirley Temple Texas Centennial "Cowboy" Outfit. Hard to find in 27 Size, Clean, Excellent Condition! In 1936, Texas marked its first 100 years of statehood with a huge celebration. Shirley Temple's appearance at the Centennial Exposition was commemorated by Ideal with a specialty Shirley Temple Texas Centennial Doll, often referred to as the "cowboy" doll. Specially made in the 11", 17", and 27 sizes, though some have been found in other sizes as well.The 27 cowboy doll has a red satin shirt, leather chaps and vest, rayon tagged satin bandana, brown socks, oilcloth boots, and a cowboy hat. Reference: Tonya Bervaldi Camaratta's book, "Shirley Temple Dolls & Collectibles, " page 50. The outfit is in incredibly clean excellent condition. The brown suede vest, chaps, and gun strap remain vibrant and uniform in color. All of the gems, studs, and tassels are present and firmly factory attached. Replacement brown velvet ribbon back ties on chaps (hand sewn, easily replaced).
I'm sure the ties were meant to be tied in a square knot, not a big pretty bow (lol, not sure what I was thinking). It's red satin shirt is clean, no stains nor fading, and retains its three red bakelite buttons. There is a small hole on the left sleeve (please see photo). Amazingly rare to find this satin shirt in such beautiful condition, most deteriorated. Brown cotton twill long shorts are in excellent clean condition, no imperfections found.
The red cotton scarf and brown suede boots (color matches the brown suede chaps, vest, and gun holster, perfectly), arIne replacements. Also included is an authentic Ideal Shirley Temple metal gun (made for a smaller doll) and a vintage metal Texas Ranger pin.
