I'm not a doll expert so will describe her as best as I can, and I took lots of pictures so please review them very carefully. She is marked on her back "Ideal Doll 21" (the 21 is written backwards as 12) and has her hair in its original set and firmly attached to her head, with her original black silk ribbon and original bobby pins in her hair. Her eyes automatically close to sleep when she lies down and automatically open when she stands up. Her composition is very smooth on her face with no crazing, cracks or chips, and also smooth on her body. Her arms, legs and head are all firmly attached.She's wearing her original clean and lovely full-length dress with both buttons securely attached on the back, wearing her undergarment with both original safely pins securely attached on the back, and wearing her gold shoes and white socks. She is also wearing her original "Judy Garland Doll" pin.
This looks to be a really very nice and rare collectible doll in excellent condition, especially for its age. Also included as added bonuses are (i) an original full-page from the Los Angeles Examiner newspaper from Thursday, December 19, 1940 measuring approximately 16" by 20" with a terrific ad for the doll which itself is a great find and would look fun framed (it shows browning/edgewear since it's paper) and (ii) an original page from an FAO Schwarz catalog listing the doll. The doll comes from a smoke-free home.
