RAREST and Smallest -- a diminutive 14" -- 1930s Vintage Princess Beatrix Baby Doll in Music Box Case with Cradle insert
Photogenic and Gorgeous... 14" MINT in Case Baby Princess Beatrix with TWO dress sets
NEVER PLAYED WITH condition.
Not only the RAREST Beatrix but also in her RARE case..
I have never seen the 14" sized Beatrix until I came upon this one recently. I "knew" she had to exist because I have had the RADIO STYLE Music Box carry CASE for a few years, finding it too small for the 16" Beatrix... "there just had to be a Beatrix baby to fit inside..." I have waited a long time to reunite Beatrix with her case!
The case is fashioned like a radio and the bakelite knurled knob on the front turns to wind the music box that is hidden inside. It plays "Rock-A-Bye Baby" -- CLICK on my third photo which is a video and will play the tune for you.
A HIGH COLOR exceptional Ideal composition and cloth doll from the 1930's with factory original long gown set in original Ideal case -- 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 clear BROWN eyes are original and UNCRAZED ... there are NO restorations or repairs at all. The eye mechanism functions smoothly. Real human hair lashes are all present but for a tiny few on the outer left eye. NO CRAZE LINES AT ALL on the entire baby doll. This doll has NOT BEEN restored, and comes exactly as received over 79 years ago from the toy shop.
Princess Beatrix is just 14" and has creamy alabaster skin tone with a rosebud mouth and beautifully blushed cheeks; gorgeous dark molded curly hair has no wear at all -- excellent condition! Her composition is fabulous with 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 immaculately clean, with no odors, and no stains 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. DEEP pink blush shines brightly at the knees and the top of her hands. Her cloth body is clean with no tears or rips -- she has been very well cared for all these years gone by! 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 creamy white organdy dress, matching slip, pantaloons, pink felt embroidered hood and matching capelet, and pink knit booties are ALL ORIGINAL to this particular doll. This outfit is in mint condtion and has never been removed from Beatrix until she came to me recently. Additionally, I have added an additional pink cotton organdy dress with matching bonnet and slip -- this set is also an original Ideal Princess Beatrix dress set --- this is the more classic and familiar design we are accustomed to seeing Beatrix wear. There are two pinholes in the pink fabric on one puffy sleeve; otherwise nice gently played with condition.
Baby Beatrix comes in her original Ideal case -- complete with CRADLE INSERT that removes from the case and has cardboard rockers on the bottom so you can gently rock Beatrix to sleep. I have included a lovely blue blanket with a pink bow and pink edging to snuggle her in and keep her warm. The case is in excellent condition. There are two clasps -- one on each side of the case -- to keep Baby safe inside if so desired, for travelling I expect. The inside lid the LABEL graphics of our little Pirincess in pajamas are intact but spotted.
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.
