Ultra Rare, Complete 3-pc Outfit, Onesie Slip & Celluloid Pin, All in Excellent Clean Condition! Referenced in Tonya Bervaldi-Camaratta's book, "Shirley Temple Dolls & Collectibles, " page 71.
I have been collecting for close to 30 years and have only seen a handful of these complete outfits, fortunate to own three during these years. As you may know, most Shirley Temple doll outfits were made in various styles, designs and fabrics.I have personally seen this jumper in a deep red color with a white dimity blouse, a blue jumper with a white dimity blouse (like this one), and a blue jumper with a pink blouse. This is an ultra rare 20" Ideal Shirley Temple doll jumper dress outfit from the movie, "Little Miss Broadway. The outfit consists of a white dimity cotton shirt, an exquisite deep regal royal blue cotton jumper dress, and its original separate sash belt with the embossed crisscross detail. Also included, original onesie slip and celluloid Shirley Temple pin. The white dimity cotton shirt has a peter pan collar, short puffy sleeves, a pleated accent down the front, and closes in the back with its two original MOP buttons still factory secured.
Shirt is in excellent condition with only slight dusting on the top of the sleeves from being displayed. The deep regal royal blue jumper is exceptional! Jumper is created from a deep royal blue cotton, resembles dupioni silk, has grosgrain suspenders that still retain its original embossed crisscross detail, suspenders are secured in the front with its original MOP buttons and loose in the back (as intended), has a short bib attached to a perfectly pleated skirt.The slightest of imperfection found is minimal fraying on the very ends of the ribbon suspenders (please see photos). The jumper retains all of its fabric weight and crispness, and retains its original beautiful deep royal blue color. No tags, except for a remnant of its size tag. The separate sash belt is in perfect condition! Retains all of its crisscross details, and its deep royal blue color matches the jumper perfectly.
As rare as this outfit is, it's even rarer to find all three pieces, the belt is almost always missing. Also included is the outfit's original "mint" Ideal Shirley Temple 20 onesie slip, and its original celluloid Shirley Temple pin. The second to last photo shows this outfit being displayed, along with a smaller size version of this outfit that does retain its original tag for comparison. Last photo shows this exact outfit on my 20 Shirley Temple doll to show the fit. Anything else photographed are excluded from this sale.Please look at the photos, use the magnifying option, and please feel free to as questions.
