What a great looking doll and super outfit! She has been professionally repainted though so hard to tell. The brown eyes are somewhat cloudy, has all her lashes. There is a craze line below her right eye that is sealed with the repaint.
Excellent condition curly mohair wig. Strung just right so she's easy to pose with the exception that the head may lean to one side, just need to straighten it up and it stays in place.
My guess is the Little Colonel outfit was made by a fabulous seamstress and includes an attached half slip, wonderful hat with wire edging, wrist ties for her to show off the dress, cotton underwear with lace waist, rayon socks, oilcloth tie shoes and vintage reproduction Shirley Temple pin. Dress has some yellowing on 3 pleats in the front bottom ruffle and some pin holes on the front waist ruffle, as pictured. Also included are 2 doll club ribbons from 1985, second & third place along with the owner of the doll at that time. Back of neck is marked "Shirley Temple", back of torso is marked "USA 16".
