This intricately detailed nesting doll was hand-painted, and signed by the artist Chechetova. It depicts a red haired woman holding a basket full of berries. The back of the doll features a display of flowers. Each of the five dolls features a slightly different variation on the same theme. The largest doll of this set measures 5 3/4" tall. Matte finish.
This doll was imported straight from Russia. For over 100 years nesting dolls have been hand-made in almost the same manner, and for over 100 years they have been synonymous with Russia culture. Bring home a wonderful piece of folk-art today with this nesting doll; its decorative purposes are only limited by your imagination.
