A real wood matryoshka nesting doll set from Semyenov in Russia.

The wooden doll separates into 9 pieces, with the painting getting simpler and with the smallest turned from a single piece of wood that does not separate.

The first Russian nest dolls appeared in the 1890s, carved by Vasily Zvyozdochkin from a design by the folk art painter Sergey Malyutin. The toy quickly became famous world wide (and even won a bronze medal in 1900 at the World Exhibition in Paris). They may be painted in a variety of themes, from a family to politicians to figures out of fairy tales.

Our set of matryoshkas shows peasant girls in scarves, carrying roses. They are made in Semyonov, Russia, and are shaped and painted individually, so that no two are alike. The high-gloss finish is wonderful smooth to the touch, contrasting with the rougher untreated wood of the interior.
