"Aaaargh! " says the scruffy Pirate Nesting Doll. This matryoshka nesting pirate has a stubbly beard and a rag-tag crew ready to man the ship, and mutiny, if need be. Each pirate is a natural scalawag, complete with scabbard, eyepatch, Jolly Roger, and bottle of rum. Watch out! They might make you walk the gang plank in a pure Russian stacking doll frenzy
Production Techniques: Hand Painting. This nesting doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, the Russian center of nesting doll carving. The carved pieces were assembled, doll inside a doll, and then delivered to the workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia. Our artists painstakingly hand paint every detail, beginning with backgrounds and moving to the finer elements that require a brush of very select Siberian squirrel hair. It is daunting to think of the time and talent invested in each of the nesting pieces! 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. The bottom of the largest doll gets stamped with Golden Cockerel's "Made in Russia " mark of nesting doll quality, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
Small parts, not for children under 3 years due to choking hazard.
Please do not let your children put nesting dolls into their mouths.
