Now I have two vintage Shirley's..

I love Shirley Temple and the dolls that were made to look like her. These two cuties are from the 1950's. One is a 15" and the other is a 12", both are wearing original outfits. The 12" has replaced socks and shoes, the 15" may be all original. Both were doll show finds.

A bit of nostalgia..

When I was about 8 years old, I had a Wolverine stove and refrigerator. There was a set of plastic food that I played with that was just the right size for those little appliances. A lady at the doll show had some of those same plastic foods for sale. Of course I had to have them. I'm sure my brother will remember them too.

Another Group Photo

This shot has an N15 in the front, VT18 to the left, VT20 to the right and a VT22 in the back. These dolls were often advertised as "sisters". The taller dolls were, of course, the big sisters.

The Square Faced Revlon

This is a VT22 (22") Revlon doll. She is oftened referred to as the "square" faced Revlon. This size is a little harder to find, but is not as rare as the 26" version, which at auction recently sold for about $6000. One of those will probably not be in my collection. I have another VT22 dressed in a fall outfit, so I'll show her in October. This one is in a Christmas dress made by Sugar.

Which dress is the reproduction?

This is a VT18 (18") and a VT20 (20"), one of these dresses is original from the late 1950's and the other is a reproduction. Can you tell which is which?
