Vintage 1935 16" Shirley Temple "Little Rebel Doll. All Original, Never Played With, Near Mint Condition in Original Box! The doll is near perfection! This is a vintage 1935 composition Shirley Temple 16" doll wearing her original clothing, an adorable red "Little Rebel dress. I doubt that this outfit has ever been removed from this doll until now to photograph her.Shirley has a golden blonde mohair wig with distinctive curls, retains her original silk ribbon hair bow and original rosy coloring to her composition. She has a full set of eyelashes and beautiful sleep eyes (one eye perfect, the other eye's pupil has crazed), yet still looks nice.
Infamous dimples are perfectly indented, and her rosy cheeks haven't faded over time. Shirley's body composition is also all original and flawless.Knees are still rosy, and she is correctly marked, "Shirley Temple" both on the back of her neck and back. Tiniest of flaws is paint loss on the tip of her tiny little pinkie. She looks like she just came off of the store's shelf. Shirley's precious "Little Rebel" red dimity polka-dot dress is sheer perfection.
All original silk ribbons are still factory attached. Colors remain vibrant, fabric is clean and retains all of its crispness.The dress, somehow, lost its Ideal rayon tag, unless it was deliberately removed by its first owner. The original slip onesie is also in flawless condition; no rips nor tears, fabric is clean and retains all of its crispness, and retains its perfect size tag.
Noticed only one other set of pin holes in the back from the safety pin closure, the second made by me. The white collar, white puffy sleeves, the onesie slip, along with her socks all have slightly darkened from age. Shirley also comes with her original rayon socks and white oilcloth Maryjane snap shoes, no imperfections aside from slight darkening. And, her original celluloid Shirley Temple pin.Shirley has been safely and snuggly stored in her original box that is in exceptional clean condition. Clear vibrant graphics, "RED" stamped on the box, all four box corners are intact, no stains or watermarks, just lid seam separations (please see photos).
