I had never seen the 14" sized Beatrix until I came upon one last year. I "knew" she had to exist because I had the RADIO STYLE Music Box carry CASE for a few years that originally held this size Beatrix; I sold that little one in the case... and now I find another to offer once again.
A HIGH COLOR exceptional Ideal composition and cloth doll from the 1930's with her Ideal factory original long gown set -- a stunning doll to stand out in any collection. Add to your Ideal doll or composition collection with this highly desirable baby.
Presenting PRINCESS BEATRIX of the NETHERLANDS
Some dolls are just naturally photogenic like some people. This little Princess Beatrix steals my heart with her fetching poses. Made by Ideal in 1938 to commemorate the birth of the Netherland's own Princess Beatrix -- she is named for the daughter of Queen Wilhelmina of Holland. Baby is correctly marked Ideal / Made in U.S.A. on the nape of her neck. Molded dark brown hair; non-working crier; composition head, arms and legs. Factory sized at 14" she is one of a group of sizes ranging from 14"-26" produced at that time. All but this one -- the smallest -- have the flirty eyes.
Her beautiful eyes are original with the right one just slightly darkened ... there are NO restorations or repairs at all. The eye mechanism functions smoothly. Real human hair lashes are all present. NO CRAZING. This doll has NOT BEEN restored, and comes exactly as received over 79 years ago.
Princess Beatrix is just 14" and has creamy alabaster skin tone with a rosebud mouth and beautifully blushed cheeks; gorgeous dark molded curly hair -- excellent condition! Her composition is fabulous with little to no craze lines anywhere to her head, arms, molded hair, and legs -- your eyes are drawn to hers and then she mesmerizes you with her artful poses. Composition is -- all smooth and with a satiny quality. Beatrix's cloth body is clean, with no odors, or tears... remember this sweet little baby is over 79 years old!!
She has lovely sculpting of her arms and legs -- chubby legs and smooth composition lend itself to endearing baby features. She has a non-working crier in her tummy.
Ideal advertised this doll as "A popular new baby princess in doll form! Here is a doll that is truly a baby doll. It has the softest and cuddliest body that Ideal has ever produced -- Beatrix's arms and legs are so jointed that they will fall backward or forward just like those of a real baby -- her tiny fists are clenched like the fists of a newborn baby. Princess Beatrix can sit up or lie down, just as a real baby would in any pose, with one foot in her mouth or with her hands beneath her head -- or almost any other position a baby can take."
Princess Beatrix's long, crisp, pure white cotton organdy dress, and matching slip are ALL ORIGINAL. This outfit is in mint condtion; the pantaloons are replaced; and I have added a lovely pair of pink and cream knit booties to complete her outfit.
I have had a range of sizes in the Princess Beatrix doll, but this little beauty is a lovely size for your collection, and ready to be displayed perhaps sitting in her own little chair, or draped softly against an elegant pillow on your bed.
