This Ideal Shirley is marked on her head with the Ideal mark but no other size or names. My research indicates she is the first issue to test the waters so to speak. She dates to 1934 which is the first production year for Shirley. She has mild crazing but no deep crackling. Her wig shows significant age. I am terrible with doll hair so please study the photos for condition. She is dressed in a three piece mommy made set that is beautifully sewn. There is a blue print onesie, a blue print dress with two pockets (one with her own hankie), and a dear hat with a bow of the print fabric and lace that matches the dress's collar. Under this is the original factory white cotton onesie. She also has her original socks and shoes. The clothes have all just been laundered and pressed. The last photo shows Shirley with a newer replacement wig. I will include this if you wish.
