Face painting is also perfect! Shirley's beautiful hazel sleep eyes are clear, although her left black pupil has slightly crystalized, and there is a hairline scratch on her right eye. Retains her eyelashes, although a bit sparse on the edges. As you can see in the photos, her eyes still look clear and beautiful. Any imperfection mentioned are extremely slight, nearly unnoticeable, and me just being thorough.Shirley's body composition is also near flawless. No crazing, breakage or cracks, just some slight lines and rubs. She is correctly marked on the back of her neck, "Shirley Temple COP Ideal N&T Co" and "Shirley Temple, 18" on her back. She looks like she just came off of the store's shelf! Shirley's precious "Scotty Dog" red dimity dress is sheer perfection.
Original red dimity fabric retains its uniform vibrant color, little scotty dogs are firmly attached, original buttons and deep royal blue cording are still factory secured, and the original perfect Ideal rayon tag and perfect size tag are still neatly sewn at the seam. Dress is in amazingly like-new mint condition.Underneath her dress is a like-new mint condition onesie slip that also retains its perfect size tag (please see photos). Like the rest of her outfit, Shirley's original socks and shoes are in clean lovely condition, and the snaps on her shoes work perfectly. The original celluloid Shirley Temple pin has never been removed from the dress. This precious Shirley Temple doll has been safely and snuggly stored in her original box that remains whole and complete, has been previously taped, does show wear, but is clean and has kept this doll safe and in beautiful condition.
