Nesting Dolls (Trade Aid)


A bit different from the other dolls in this category, this set of 5 rounded painted dolls of varying sizes are hand painted with detail. Making these dolls requires a high level of skill. The smallest figurine which cannot be taken apart is usually made first, then the other pieces are turned on a lathe. Precision is required to ensure the perfect amount of wood is removed from the doll’s top and bottom half to ensure both pieces fit together perfectly. These dolls are also known in Russian as matryoshka dolls, translating to Matriarch.
