I'm offering this exquisite Matryoshka Nesting Doll. Ranging in size from 7-3/4" to 1-1/4". This doll has exquisite gold coloring. Traditionally the outer layer is a woman, dressed in a sarafan, a long and shapeless traditional Russian peasant jumper dress.. The figures inside may be of either gender, the smallest, innermost doll is typically a baby turned from a single piece of wood.
Much of the artistry is in the painting of each doll, which can be very elaborate. The dolls often follow a theme; varying from fairy tale characters to Soviet leaders. Items are described to the best of my ability but message me for any add'l jpgs or question.
