From my mother's estate, Shirley has always been in a smoke free environment. Her eyes have been enhanced, they are not cloudy anymore. A fingertip has been restored and her hair has been refreshed. Shirley's hair is clean and the curls look very good. Her hair has the original ribbon and hair pins.
Her eyelashes and teeth are intact. Very rare Baby Takes a Bow dress. The clothes have been soaked in Forever New from Saks Fifth Ave.The fabric is in excellent vintage condition, bright and odor free. The dress has all the bows and original button. The onesie is in good vintage condition. The socks are in excellent vintage condition, no holes, no repairs. They are missing their soles and one buckle. Pictures of the original 1934 Baby Takes a Bow dress can be seen in several reference books including those by Suzanne Mancuso, Edward Pardella, and Patricia Smith. The thumb on her left hand has some wear , as does the tip of her right foot. Photos show wear on her bottom and inner thigh, a few scratches on her left front calf. Her body shows a few age marks. When I was having her restored, I only did the immediate stabilizing, as I personally feel it is wrong to make a doll of this age perfect and to look new.
