IDEAL VINTAGE COMPOSITION IDEAL GINGER SHIRLEY TEMPLE DOLL PAIR RARE COSTUME
Item History and Pricing
IN MY OPINION, PAIR RESEMBLE HANSEL & GRETEL. PAIR ALSO REMIND ME OF LITTLE BO-PEEP & TOM-TOM IN 1934 HOLIDAY MOVIE CLASSIC, "BABES IN TOYLAND" WITH LAUREL & HARDY.
IDEAL DOLL CO. DID MAKE STORY BOOK CHARACTERS ... (I.E., 1939 "GULLIVER'S TRAVELS" USED DEANNA DURBIN FOR THE GULLIVER CHARACTER. GULLIVER'S COSTUME HAD FELT MATERIALS AS WELL AND WORE BLACK, LEATHER BOOTS.) VALUED AT $850.00 IN 2002, PG. 163 IN "DOLLS & ACCESSORIES".
"CINDERELLA" AND "SNOW WHITE" BOTH USED THE GINGER/S.T.MOLD. EXACT SAME BODY AS S.T., EXCEPT FOR DIMPLE IN CHIN, RATHER THAN ON EITHER CHEEK. FLOWER CORSAGE ON HANSEL'S HAT, IS SIMILAR TO FLOWERS USED ON CINDERELLA'S WIG. CURVED FINGERS EXACTLY LIKE THE ST MOLD. EYE SOCKET AND MOUTH IDENTICAL (6 INSET TEETH WITH FELT TONGUE)Please view add'l photos showing heavy make up Ideal Doll Co., ST Bluebird and ST MIB 19.5 In. Cinderella with dimple in chin. I also added ST Heidi as she's in a ethnic costume.
Received below listed message from ebayer on (Fri., 1-25-19):"Beautiful Ideal Ginger dolls as the fairy tales pairHave heard they existed, but had never seen. Very nice museum pieces. Respectfully, Pat"
TWO EBAYERS HAVE ALSO INFORMED ME IN THEIR OPINION COSTUME COULD BE CZECH, OR A HUNGARIAN FOLK COSTUME. THEREFORE, PERHAPS DOLLS WERE USED AT 1939 NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR (I.E., THE 12 IN. COMP. "DREAMLAND" DOLLS HAD REPRESENTED VARIOUS COUNTRIES). "ARRANBEE DOLL CO." ALSO MADE EARLY 1940'S COMP DOLLS IN FELT/WOOL ETHNIC COSTUMES (SEE PG. 85 IN ARRANBEE DOLLS BY S. DEMILLAR & D. BREVIK, NORWEGIAN PAIR VALUED AT $1,000.00 IN 2004)
