With love,
Shirley Temple

We do our best to acquire exceptional examples of the beloved Ideal Shirley Temple Doll, and we believe that this fantastic one is among them. This seventeen-inch model, still housed in her original, correctly labeled box, will be the shining "star" of some lucky collector's doll family.
Highlights include composition in very good condition with very minor crazing, magnificent coloring, the mohair wig in its original set, bright clear eyes, very full lashes (tiny flake on upper lid of right eye) and a crisp, tagged, pink fluted costume (minor foxing) complete with button! Her shoes and socks remain in excellent condition. Also included is a genuine Shirley Temple postcard, and a collectible photo of Shirley, too.
In a word...miraculous!

Thank you, L.








Here we have a Kamkins art doll of Atlantic City, New Jersey, this darling child, who stands just a hint over 18" tall, is complete with her heart-shaped paper label upon her cloth body.
Further details include a very nice paint finish that includes lightly blushed cheeks, blue-painted eyes, and a full mouth.
This example wears a darling, genuine Kamkins ensemble (light soil) that is comprised of a printed cotton dress in orange, yellow and white, complete with a matching cap. Vintage, brown, oilcloth shoes complete the presentation.

13 1/4" brilliantly colorful cloth doll from the Georgene Averill line, this sweet example is, in a word - adorable.

Thank you, L.







Uncut booklet of Davy and Dorothy paper dolls from the series “A Queen Holden cut-out doll with clothes to dress.” Published by the Whitman Co., U.S.A., 1933.

"Skookum" was designed by Mary McAboy of Missoula, Montana, and manufactured by various companies. This seven-inch child example retains his original wool blanket folded to simulate arms, wool felt trousers with fringe and suede boots with painted accents, while colorful beads encircle his neck.
In very good condition overall, he retains his paper headband with feather and a marvelous black mohair wig.
A paper label upon the sole of his moccasin denotes him as the genuine article.









Lenci Fashion Plate

Measuring sixteen inches tall overall, including her hat, this Lenci girl could not be more adorable. This version, which we believe is a model #80 with the #111 face, has the leggier body type, brown eyes with shadow, and features wefted mohair sewn directly to the head.
The very stylish ensemble consists of a short dress in organdy that is simply edged in aqua felt (showing tender areas) over which is worn a chic coat (distress to buttonhole stitching) with a scarf built in as part of the collar, plus a matching cap.
For an early Lenci example the condition is good, with just a bit of soil, and just a few moth issues visible on the back of the coat, and upon the cap.
A hard to find model in exceptional condition.

Doll alone measures: 14 1/2" tall.







Vulnerability is expressed on the face of this early, marked "Germany", Half-doll example. With a tapered base in the manner of Dressel and Kister, color is key here; in the blush of her cheeks to the wonderful shade of red of her hairband to the yellow bows upon her braids. There are repairs to fingers on both hands.

Measures: 4-3/4" tall inc. metal flange.
