PLEASE SEE MY OTHER LISTING FOR A STUNNING 16” IDEAL BABY SHIRLEY TEMPLE DOLL

*EDIT: I have included a photo below that shows the dimples in her cheeks, and a listing in the Shirley Temple Doll Collector's book written by Tonya Bavaldi, to show that is a genuine article.*

JUST THOUGHT I SHOULD ADD ON A REASONABLE QUERIES TO BE HONEST NOT TO MISLEAD PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS... ( LOST THE CHANGE TO POST IT ON THE LISTING, BUT FINALLY FOUND IT..

Shirley Temple was in fact born in 1928 and not 1929 as her parents had her believe so that they coudl prolong her child hood, which also goes some way to explaining why she was more mature, she only found out on her 15 birthday that she was indeed 16... Shirley's earlier 'potocol' dolls had nomarkings and just a blue patent pending tag in the inside of  her head, I have two of these, they were also 'chubbier' to reflect her age.

Shirley's Mother rejected the original  doll molds as they had blue eyes and Shirley' were in fact brown or hazel. Shirley also had 52 pin curls as a young star but this increased to 56 as she got older and her hair went from very light blonde to honey and then dark blonde as she matured as did her dresses and hair styles. the baby Shirley's came with mohair wigs and some without wigs but molded hair as do both of mine.

Some Shirley's were unmarked a and some were very unlike Shirley, especially the French, German and Polish, some did not even have dimples or curls and the Japanese versions ere awful, but still collectable. This doll has been pride of place and is just beautiful-any questions/videos please ask, I am only too willing to help.  :) but thought it only fair to let you know and judge for yourself, I have taken her to many antique doll fairs and many people have wanted her, but I know need the money...   :( I may even have the RED dress for her as seen in the collectors book photograph, I will have a hunt, I do have over 200 hundred very rare dolls, I am listing my rare signed Marie Osmond doll immaculate with box, patterns and stands, so keep looking  :)

Dear dg_silva,

Hi, First I would like to complement you on the restoration job you did on this doll she is very beautiful---but I have looked and looked and I see not a dimple one on her. Our so loved Shirley Temple started in her first movie around 1932 at 3 years old. She had two deep dimples just at the corners of each bottom lip. Though Shirley was only patented by Ideal in the U.S. and many other companies throughout the world the world's beloved little girl was not blk,blue or purple, she was white. I am not a prejudice person, that is just stupid. But she was not oriental or Indian. I am not an expert, but I have been into doll for about 15 years, I knew it would happen one day but this little girl though beautiful, doesn't resemble our so loved little Shirley at all. Where are her forty pin curls mama put in her hair every night? Pretty doll and good work. Good luck on your auction. - dollydarlins43
