|Some Babys that I receive simply cannot be restored to their original beauty...and I will not destroy a doll to repair one...( Kind of defeats the purpose)|
|The rubber in her body wasn't the only thing that had deteriorated...So plastic surgery was needed and she received new ears sculpted from cold porcelain.....|
|A new baby body made of vinyl airbrushed to match her head ( Which was airbrushed,as well) Brand new outfit and she is all ready to go home with her Mom. Granted the value isn't there , but she is lovely,again, and ready to begin her new life....|

This lovely little Angel came to me by way of the owner's son....Found in a box of old Christmas decorations ...He told me that he remembered how she always adorned the top of their tree, year after year, and wished to have her restored...I have never seen a little Angel like her before....Her repairs were simple and mostly cosmetic....New wings and a newly sculpted arm and she was ready to grace the top of their Christmas tree once again....Tradtion....How I love the word....

Very few dolls are as recognizable as Shirley
Temple....Cherished by collectors, her value is ever
present ..even with the signs of time on her face and body.These repairs are common with composition dolls.
A little plastic surgery and a new bungee and we are as good as new....Ready to enjoy many more years with her collector family......
