Antique Ideal COP Shirley Temple Depression Mohair Composition 15 Orig Dress with slip and underpants. This doll has condition issues.
The dress, slip and underpants are unmarked, but appear original and with the exception of yellowing and some small stains on the underwear and slip, all appear to have original snaps and buttons. The lace on the front of the dress and on the slip is still in good condition. The little face has been well loved--maybe kissed bunches as the lipstick is worn off, but her little teeth and smile continue on. She has sleepy eyes that function and her little dimples are still visible along with the sweet eyebrows. The marking on the back of her neck is so worn that you can just barely see the "CoP I" for the CoP Ideal.
Shirley Temple is worn completely off and this particular doll was made before the printing of her name on the back was started. There is some cracking in the composition finish mostly on her face and some of the mohair is missing from her wig, but part is still visible. I have not been able to find this dress on other examples.
The little slip snaps at the shoulders which was a great idea for little girls hands and dressing and undressing the doll. This is a very old doll and has been well loved. This was acquired at an estate sale. There was no other provenance with the doll. I did not attempt to launder the clothing.There is a light age smell to the clothing.
