25" Ideal Composition Doll in Factory Original Dress
Layaway available. Beautiful, large, Factory Original 25" Deanna Durbin by Ideal. She wears her original dress with matching slip to and is spectacular. Typically the Deanna Durbin dolls did not hold up well. Not sure why...must have been a flaw in the composition. Many have very bad lifting. Luckily THIS GIRL DID hold up well AND IS FREE OF ANY LIFTING. She is wonderful. She is all composition. Has no cracks and no splits. She does have typical crazing from age and time. A good craze concealer will take care of that easily if need be. I personally would leave her just as she is. She is a beauty! Has all fingers. Beautiful face with working sleep eyes that have crystallized. Original dark eye shadow. Has lash both real and painted. Original painted brow. Lovely facial color. Open mouth with teeth. Original human hair wig in original set. The curls have come a little loose but wig is full with no hair cuts and no bald spots. Her original organza dress is lovely with a floral print running through it. It is full and displays beautifully. It is in lovely condition with no rips, no holes. The elastic to her armholes is stretched but if you stuff her puffy sleeves with tissue paper it will correct the situation and they will look fine. Underneath she has her original slip and undies. Shoes and socks are replacements and look nice with her outfit. Her stringing is loose and will eventually need to be done but for now she works well with a doll stand. Deanna Durbin was a child movie star who was hired to compete with Shirley Temple. This doll was made in different sizes with 25" being the largest made. She is very pretty. One of the nicest I have seen in a long time since they do not show up that often. Marked Ideal Doll 25. A really nice addition to any collection.....especially if you like the larger dolls. Stands 25" tall. Put her on layaway now and have her in time for the holidays. will refund any shipping overage.
