This doll is in nice vintage condition and has been kept in an air conditioned environment. She has been lovingly restored: some repaint with buffing was done to her body and face. And her eyes were restored. (please examine all pics closely).Combed out and restyled o. Riginal wig and added hair bow.
Ugly crazing removed from her eyes and built back up (hazel green eyes w/ lashes). Some mending was done to dress to stabilize and secure thinning areas. Silk blue ribbons restored(replaced). I want to point out that there are some small linier blemishes along her right elbow that couldn't be all buffed out completely.
They're not very noticeable. T his area was buffed, sealed.With a doll preservative, buffed again and looks to be stable. Houldn't be an issue. Her facial features were repainted, touched-up. She has an open mouth with 6 tiny teeth (4 showing, with 2 hidden) and velvet tongue. Her dress is original and still charming with most pleats in tact. All buttons and fasteners original on dress. Undergarment(onesie with attached slip), shoes and socks are original too. Dress is in delicate vintage condition and had to be professionally cleaned and mended in some areas.
As a precaution and being that dress. Is old and delicate, an extra piece of thin lining was applied to the inside of her dress near the back shoulders to. Prevent any threat of future stress tearing. Tag on dress is frayed.
Her Ideal pin/badge is authentic and has it's patented mark on outside rim. ID marks on doll are. Shirley Temple in a half circle behind her head with the letters Cop IDEAL, N&T.
And between her shoulders "Shirley Temple 18". No missing, broken or replaced body parts. She is beautiful with the cutest face and will display nicely. She comes with her own little doll too. Thank you so much for looking...
