This woodburned doll is made by an artist from the cottage industry in the Moscow region. He adorns the dolls with delightful floral work trimmed in gold foil, front and back. The woodburned (or poker work) doll complemented with gold foil continues to be among the most popular of the traditional dolls, though increasingly difficult to source. Fewer artists have the time and patience required to burn in all the details that make these dolls so attractive. Snap them up as you find them, and you’ll enjoy the natural wood look and feel of these artsy dolls. Dated on the bottom.
