The last one (C) is a dark blue with a Menorah on the front as well as gifts, a Dreidle, Gelt and a winter scene of snowy windows with Menorahs in them. The other dolls have Menorahs, children with gifts, Dreidles and the smallest has the Ten Commandments on it.
Wonderful gift idea!
Matryoshka Nesting Dolls
This unique gift from the heart of Russia, bearing a rich tradition and the artist’s personal touch, your doll will be treasured for generations to come.
Introduced by Russian toy makers in the 1890’s, the nesting doll quickly emerged as an all- embracing symbol of Mother Russia and the inevitable triumph of successive generations – a sort of national toy. The name itself, “Matryoshka”, which has the Latin root “mater” (meaning mother), conjures up the image of the staid family matron, for which Russia in known.
Art centers, such as prestigious Sergiev Posad, developed unique styles in producing the finest dolls. Taking aged linden wood, a craftsmen turns each set of dolls individually, the smallest one first. Then the artist begins the long process of painting and lacquering – work that never seems to end as one doll leads to the next. The original smiling peasant girl in festive costume has been joined by village characters, religious figures, and the artist’s fantasy to entertain collectors around the world.
Each doll comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA), which includes tips for opening and caring for your doll.
