Shirley Temple doll by R. DeLauey
This tiny 1" Shirley Temple doll was created by R. DeLauey in 1982. She has the Shirley Temple attitude, holding her dress out with her hands and her legs looking like they may do a dance step at any moment. Snuggled in her head of the tiniest real hair ringlet curls, is a thin red band tied in a bow to match the red trim in her perfectly pleated, white lace dress. Her shoes and socks are painted on with that same red band around the sock top. This doll was part of Sue Narr's estate dollhouse, and recently sold for about $270 on eBay.
