EXTREMELY RARE Russian nesting dolls!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have only seen them featured in an old Russian nesting doll book (Russian Matyoshka  pg 87, see photo for reference). These are even more elusive than the Aiguel style (pg 51, in A Collectors Guide To Nesting Dolls book, collector must).
According to the translation my friend wrote, this style represents the Asian nationalities within Russia in their folk dress. I just love their sweet faces with the Asian eyes and round little mouths as if singing.
Colors, detail and old patina are wonderful! Note these are not new dolls. Vintage/old patina; scratches/scuffs consistent with age/play; only 3 dolls; dents; paint loss; crazing of paint; glare on dolls is from photo lighting source. Height approximately 6 tall, 5 and 4. Although only 3 survived all this time, we are lucky as they are a true rare treasure.If you are a collector of OLD and RARE nesting dolls, dont miss your opportunity to add these to your collection! Expected signs of vintage age and being used are shown. Vintage/old patina; scratches/scuffs consistent with age/play; only 3 dolls; dents; paint loss; crazing of paint.
