This big matryoshka has 10 pieces that all nest together. You will be amazed at how small the pieces get! The first two dolls in the set each have a braid–very rare in nesting dolls. Her cheery smiles and vibrant colors are sure to win you over. Volga Maiden Dolls are our tribute to the toy-making villages of the Upper Volga River region and the traditional floral style they developed. Designed and produced in St. Petersburg Russia these dolls exhibit the consistent high quality for which weâve become renownedÂ but are offered at budget prices. We take the dolls carved in the villages themselves hand paint backgrounds and highlights at our workshop and for certain elements such as faces and flowers we reproduce original hand-painted artwork on printed vinyl and artfully apply to the dolls to make marvelous matryoshkas that will delight children and collectors. ..
