This listing is for a very nice, original vintage 1930's Ideal "Shirley Temple" doll, in the 18 inch size. The doll is comprised of "composition" material, and remains in overall very good shape. There is a consummate amount of light surface crazing extent on her face, but otherwise, she remains in totally original, utterly "as found" original condition. The "sleepy" type eyes (which close when she's laid down), are in good shape w/ a small amount of surface crazing on the pupils, which can be addressed by the application of small amounts of baby oil over time.Her limbs are in overall good shape, with some light wear of the painted surfaces at the joints, but nothing to speak of as concerns loss or damage. Suffice to say however, that simply due to age if nothing else, that her limbs are quite "loose" for want of a better word, and she'd probably benefit from being tightened up a bit.
She has all of her fingers and toes, and her wig, albeit suffering a bad case of "bed head", appears to be original and can obviously be re-made into something resembling an actual hair-do.... The back of her head is well marked with the "Ideal" and "Shirley Temple" logos, and her legs are also marked with the size designation of "18" at the joints.
I can't say with any certainty if the light gauze dress she's wearing is original of the period, however this is EXACTLY how she surfaced, and is exactly how I'm offering her, all original, and as-found.. If you're a collector of early vintage Ideal Shirley Temple composition dolls, don't miss this offering! Resale number and associated information is provided at checkout. Thank you, and good luck.
