1930s 18 inch wearing an original rare striped dress from "Curly Top"

Please view all photos of this lovely doll then read the description that follow.

Please look at all the photos, I can send you more if you would like, please just ask. This lovely Shirley Temple doll made of composition was produced by the Ideal Toy and Novelty company in the 1930s. Shirley is not restored. She is appropriately marked Shirley Temple 18. Shirley has a lovely full blonde mohair wig in its original curlset. Shirley has her painted lower lashes and eyebrows. She has original painted lips. Her eyes are glassine and are faded with age. She has her original teeth, tongue, and real upper lashes. Her eyes open and close properly. She has one of the sweetest prettiest facees I have seen on a Shirley. Her composition is excellent but she has crazing on one arm. I have included a close-up photo of that arm. There is not overall crazing on the doll, I do not see cracks or chips. Her face is gorgeous with cute dimples!!! Shirley wears a lovely original hard to find untagged dress from Curly Top with stripes. There are buttons on the front and it buttons in the back. It is not tagged, but I am including a photo of my dress for a 13 inch wich is tagged. The dress is separated a bit at the sleeve top but it is not torn. This is also pictured. You can see the material on the untagged 18 inch dress is the exact material used for the tagged 13 inch dress. Shirley has original socks and original shoes with both buckles in great condition, as well as an original onsie. Shirley is completed with an original pin. This is a very pretty clean doll that is in excellent condition that wears a hard to find original dress. She has been in my collection for many years, and I always thought she had one of the sweetest faces ever. Shirley comes from a non-smoking home and have no odors or musty smells. Buyer pays priority mail shipping and insurance. I accept checks and money orders only. I have used Global Express Mail for overseas shipments and it has worked well. I have furnished many large photos but again please ask for more. Please ask questions as this will be a final sale unless the item has been misrepresented. Please note again, the dress you are buying is NOT tagged, but I am showing in a photo the tag on my 13 inch dress, so you can see it is the exact same fabric. The last photo is MY 13 inch tagged striped Curley Top dress which is NOT for sale.
