Here I have an 18 inch composition and cloth all original Baby Shirley Temple. This doll was owned by Shirley Temple Black herself, and comes with a signed certificate of authenticity by Shirley Temple Black's son. She is truly an exquisite doll, and to own something Shirley Temple had as a child until she passed away is a huge RARE find in itself! This adorable baby Shirley even has her original NRA TAGGED clothes. This includes her hat, under shorts, slip, dress, oil cloth shoes and rayon socks. She also has a pin back attached to her dress that was on her when I received her so I am including it as well. She also has her hang tag with the auction number, and her cert of authenticity has this same number as well which increases this beloved dolls value considerably! Her eyes flirt and appears to be clear and NOT blown as most dolls this age are!!! Her composition is exceptional, showing only one tiny chip on her upper thigh, and very minimal crazing/lines when inspected with a magnifier only. (Please view pictures). She is marked Shirley Temple on the back of her neck. Her dress is tagged and is delicate, showing some dirt and a few tears, again this doesn't look bad but i wanted to note it for accuracy. Also, it looks like beautiful ribbon was added to this outfit, just lovely!! The slip has one tiny pin dot hole as well along with a very tiny bit of fraying. Her cloth body is all in tact and does show stains and what looks to be glue from when this doll was originally made? Again, please view all pictures and ask any questions you may have. The body of course is covered with her original tagged clothing and does not show at all when displayed. Her oil cloth shoes looks very nice with a couple dirt/stains noted. This does not look bad at all, noting this for accuracy only,. Her composition is truly gorgeous! I can only find MINIMAL CRAZING and very few lines near her eyes (and ONLY with a magnifying glass)!!! Please view ALL close up pictures and ask any questions prior to purchasing. This doll has been WELL preserved in a temp controlled environment since the 1930's!! I can not rave nearly enough on this baby Shirley doll's composition and her beautiful flirty eyes, WHAT A BEAUTY!!! ( Please view last picture for the best view of her clear eyes). There are very VERY slight rubs on her upper thighs, ( MINIMAL ONLY) which again is covered when her clothes are on. Her hair is all original and just needs a little restyling only!! Now, I have been as detailed as I can be and picked this doll apart, as you can see her imperfections are few and she is a huge HUGE treasure to have and own! An INCREDIBLE doll and FIND!, One you will cherish for a lifetime! Local pick up is HIGHLY recommended.
