Vintage 1930s Ideal 11 Composition Shirley Temple Doll. Mint Original Tagged Outfit, Clear Blue Tin Eyes, in Excellent Clean Condition! This is an adorable vintage 1930s Ideal composition Shirley Temple doll that stands at a mere 11 and has been lovingly and properly stored. She appears to be all original, never undressed, is wearing her original mint outfit, and is in excellent clean condition! Shirley's mohair wig is clean, full, and retains the majority of her original curls.
Her facial painted features are present and perfect. Shirley's striking original blue tin sleep eyes are clear and open and close perfectly.
Her original six white tiny teeth look freshly brushed. Adorable dimples are perfectly indented and she retains her lovely blushed cheeks. And, her facial composition, along with her body, are free of crazing and breakage.She does have some light hairline scratches, mainly near her eyes, that are almost invisible when displayed, as you can see in the photos. Shirley's composition body is uniform in color, retains her perfectly blushed little knees and hands, is correctly marked "Shirley Temple 11" on the back of her head and on her upper back, and her stringing is good, can easily hold a pose.
Only imperfections are hairline scratches on her limbs. I darkened two photos (9 & 10) for you to see these imperfections. Magnified, they appear much worse than actual. In person, they look like thin pin-point scratches, the thickness of a strand of hair. Since Shirley has never been undressed, wearing her original outfit, I preferred not to take her clothes off for photos.
Peeked inside the openings of her slip and performed the feel test on her little feet. All seem to be perfect! Aside from her face and body being in excellent clean condition, her original outfit is in amazingly mint like-new condition.
Shirley will come dressed in her original blue organdy "Dancing" dress that has embroidered flowers on its knife-pleated collar and perfect pleats throughout. The blue organdy fabric is vibrant, knife-pleats are perfect, fabric retains all of its crispness, original two button back closure are still factory sewn and secure, original pink ribbons are firmly attached, and its unblemished original Ideal rayon label is still perfectly attached.
Underneath this fabulous dress is her original onesie slip that is also in mint unblemished condition. The original safety pin is still attached and no other pin holes are present. Original celluloid pin is also attached and remains in like-new condition. Original rayon socks and oilcloth shoes are still perfect, aside from some scuff marks on the shoes.This Shirley Temple doll is in excellent clean condition and displays beautifully! The last photo shows you how perfectly she fits in with my own personal Shirley Temple doll collection. Of course, nothing in this photo is included in this listing aside from the adorable 11 Shirley Temple doll listed. Please look at the photos, use the magnifying option, and please feel free to ask questions.
