Description
 
Made in St. Petersburg, Russia. Interestingly, the concept of the nesting doll came from China in the 19th century. They evolved from the invention of the nested box, the first dolls were thinly turned and grotesquely lacquered with the smallest doll being a grain of rice. The art went west and Russia who made 70 of them out of a Lime Tree and displayed them at the World's Fair in Paris in the 1920's. Factories opened in Germany and Poland, the Russian and Polish thrived. Russia took their doll making to an art form while Poland enjoyed them as toys.

Production Techniques:
Hand Painting/ Decoupage. This doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, then delivered to the Golden Cockerel workshop in St. Petersburg , Russia . Our artists first hand paint the background, then apply various detailed elements, such as faces, which we print on a very thin vinyl adhesive. Such elements are reproduced original works of art we make specifically for nesting doll design. It is the artistís magic brush that blends the two forms of artwork together into a unified piece. Finally we baptize each doll in multiple layers of non-toxic water-based lacquer to make a marvelous matryoshka that will delight children and collectors.
