Tulipa 'Fringed Beauty'

Can anyone help me with some information about the origin of the tulip 'Fringed Beauty'.

I have a hunch it was already old when the Dutch growers started to officially register tulip varieties in the early 1930s. I'm assuming the present avatar has several others in its background going back to a typical six-petaled tulip. Can anyone fill in the names of these earlier forms? I don't have a copy of the tulip registry.
