Once there was a girl with a curl right down the middle of her forehead… BEAUTIFUL 17” Vintage 1947 Ideal Baby Beautiful Doll —Perfect Size for Loving and Display — highly desirable size among collectors.


This is the doll EVERYONE has on their Christmas List~


This is by far one of the two finest all original 'Miracle' doll I have ever seen... NO RESTORATIONS... dressed ALL ORIGINAL




 This is one of several sizes made of this most highly sought after baby doll -- this is the FAMOUS Ideal baby doll who Natalie Wood cuddled in the movie -- The Miracle on 34th Street All of us grew up watching this film and came away with "I Believe" no matter what age we were at the time. A warm reminder that our pure, childhood thoughts and dreams are worthwhile.


This is a GORGEOUS Baby! These dolls were made by Ideal Toy Co and marketed under the name "Baby Beautiful". They came in a wide range of sizes as well as with blue eyes, or brown eyes; as they were marketed by some large retailers like Montgomery Ward and Sears, some of the dolls were marked Ideal and some were not, as this one is not. SEE my 4th photo for side-by-side comparison of this 17" size and my 19" babies.


Baby Beautiful is GORGEOUS in her equally gorgeous ORIGINAL antique white cotton organdy dress, bonnet, slip and bloomers. Still wears her original bright white oilcloth shoes; I have replaced her socks with a new, old-store-stock pair of pink stripe silk socks... glad to include the original ones, but they are a little dingy.  I have added a vintage baby pink cotton twill coat and bonnet -- the set is in near MINT condition.


Baby herself is in what I would call nearly MINT CONDITION -- she is ALL ORIGINAL with NO RESTORATION. Lovely brown eyes open and close perfectly. Her body is strong and intact and only shows almost no wear. Inside her tummy is a NON-WORKING CRIER. Her one arm and both her legs have VERY light intermittent crazing. Her gorgeous FLAWLESS head has lovely high color and her chocolate brown molded curls are perfect. Lovely, sparkling brown eyes with fulll and even brush lashes open and close perfectly.


These dolls are very hard to find in this condition in any size... WOULDN'T SHE LOOK FABULOUS UNDER YOUR HOLIDAY TREE this Christmas?!


Plan ahead...this is a PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT for a Special "Someone"~
