Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for an adorble all original Shirley Temple 17 composition doll. This nice doll has a jointed composition body with hand painted features. Doll has an open mouth with exposed upper teeth and tin sleep eyes (working) with natural lashes and natural wig (glued down). Doll is wearing her original cotton print dress decorated with trim down the front, at arms and around collar with mother-of-pearl buttons with original tag and under garments including lace trimmed slip and panties, white socks and white hard plastic shoes.
Doll also is wearing her original Shirley Temple pin. Doll is marked "Shirley Temple, 17" on both the back of head and on back of body. This nice doll is in over-all excellent Estate original. The only flaw I find on this special doll is that the iris of her eyes have crystalized and the dress has faded slightly.
Composition body is in excellent condition. We at Antiques & Moore have been in the Antiques business for over 30 years and try to describe our items as accurately as possible.
