I recently purchased this doll from a garage sale and was told that it is a Shirley Temple doll... I cannot find any markings inside the head or on the body/scalp. It is a composite/cloth doll and is in superb condition. It looks as if the wig was replaced as the wig is synthetic. The doll has four teeth hazel sleepy eyes and dimples. It also has a voice box that no longer works.
I have added the link to the pics of the doll, can anyone identify or help me understand whether this is a real Shirley temple doll or a look alike... Thanks
I'm not an expert for Shirley dolls, but it could possibly be a clone/lookalike doll based on the markings. Tonya says that they are quite common during the 30s since parents would settle for a lookalike as they are more affordable than the officially licensed ones.
Special thanks to Littlesegall for the sig...

I have two shirley temple dolls from my mom and need to know what they might be worth. I can post the picture online at facebook if you are interested or you can e-mail me and I will send you the pic I have of the two dolls. I think one is of her dressed like the movie "Curly Top" and the other "Rebecca of Sunnybrook farm"? my e-mail is email@example.com
