This is a wonderful doll almost in perfect shape, her eyes are clear which is usually impossible to find on these composition dolls.

Shirley is marked on her head Shirley Temple cop ideal toy & Shirley Temple on her back. Compo is super nice still has great color, some wear to the arm joints.
Typical lines in the compo finish mostly on the back torso but no open cracks or missing compo. Knees and chest is still blushed, A previous owner has written in pencil mrs Hildebran on her chest, I left it but it could be easily removed with no damage. No broken chipped or missing fingers, toes etc. Her original Littlest Rebel Dress is in crisp stiff condition with bright color.
This dress still has what is left of the silk tag where it was removed at some point years ago, and it still has the factory tag on the inside seam of the back of the dress. The dress is not faded or damaged and is still bright and clean, crisp, the only aging is the organdy lower bell sleeves and they have slightly yellowed but nothing major, and the elastic in the sleeves have relaxed. The organdy pinafore is also in great shape and has not darkened, the original lace is still also nice and bright and crisp. There is a tiny spot of lace separation from the organdy strap on the left side.The cotton onesie has a small hole pin sized in the left strap area, color is nice and white with all lace present and original brass safety pin attached. Original socks are a little foxed in the area of the shoes where the straps have been but no holes. Original shoes are nice and not darkened, the left sole has a crease in the toe area where it has come unglued but still firmly attached on the rest of the bottom. Both buckles and straps are present, no damage, and the snaps are perfect.
