This is a C1930s Shirley Temple Composition in Original Poor Little Rich Girl Dress Button 18 Inch. This 18 inch composition Shirley Temple doll is marked Shirley Temple/Cop Ideal N&TC to her back neck and Shirley Temple/18 to her back. The composition body is jointed at the neck, shoulders, and hips, and is in very good condition with just a little bit of wear at her joints, a little bubble and associated 1/4 inch paint lift to the right side of her mouth, and a line from her right eye. Her sleep eyes are crackled but she has all of her fur eyelashes. The blond mohair wig is in excellent condition. It is still thick and curly with no moth damage. She has her original blue satin hair bow that matches her dress. Shirley has been recently restrung so all her joints are tight. She is wearing her original dress which I believe is for the movie Poor Little Rich Girl. The organdy fabric appears to have once been light pink now faded from age. The sleeve elastics have stretched. Light blue satin ribbon bows, waist sash, and neck trim decorate the dress. She is also wearing her original white cotton one piece slip and panties. Her white knit socks and center snap leatherette shoes are also original to her (the sole to the right shoe is missing). She also has her original Shirley Temple pin back button.
