Alexander Dolls are some of the most sort after world wide today. Alexander Dolls was created through the dreams and experiences of a young girl called Bertha Alexander. Bertha hated her name so she changed it to Beatrice, which, to a young girl sounded far more upper class and sophisticated. Her mother was born in Austria, but lived in Russia for a while before immigrating to the USA to escape being persecuted. She had three sisters, Rose, Florence and Jean.
