ARTIST SIGNED RUSSIAN FAIRY TALES MATRYOSHKA STACKING NESTING DOLLS. Doll's painted with beautiful colors and decorated with gold leaf with Lacquer. Photo's just do not do these justice. Look much better in the person. The doll's Russian Author Matryoshka tell a story thus the name - "Russian Fairy Tales".Total of 7 Dolls in this set, including the Large Outer containing doll. These dolls depict a story with the paintings on their front (Belly) area. I'm not sure of the exact story depicted but it appears to be a Old Man & Woman in their kitchen with an Egg and Chicken. They then become sad for some reason, and a mouse enters the story.
Not sure of the symbolism of fable. Perhaps those more familiar with these dolls and Russian history can help me out. The detail on the dolls is amazing. The artist has signed the bottom and it is in quite clear writing (see photo's), however, because of the Russian characters it is hard for me to translate. The paintings, different on each doll, depict the magical scenes of Russian famous fairy tales.Unique quality of hand painting. OUT OF YOUR PRICE RANGE?
