This truly amazing hand painted Russian 5 piece matryoshka nesting doll set is beautifully crafted by the artist to enhance details on all five dolls in the set. The details are fantastic! This set has five different dolls each hand painted with a different scene on it. The scene is of a peasant girl carrying water using the U-shaped yoke called "KOROMYSLO" and two buckets while a suitor flirts with her on the largest doll. Then on the second doll we see another young maiden still carrying the Koromyslo as she encounters other maidens from the village. The third doll depicts the Russian Snow Maiden dressed in her traditional fur lined blue cloak and cap. The fourth doll has a traditional Russian wooden house in the snow covered wood and finally the last doll is painted with a snow covered pine tree. Each doll is painted with a lovely face, a fur lined cap, collar and cuffs and is decorated with flowers gold edging and highlights on their detailed and flowing cloaks. The dolls are painted in watercolors and you can clearly see the wood grain through the paint. This is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is carefully crafted from Linden wood. The largest doll measures approximately 7.25 inches tall and the smallest measures approximately 1.75 inches!
THIS IS A GREAT GIFT FOR COLLECTORS OF DOLLS OR NESTING DOLLS!!
