S-54156/1 Flower-Dotted Nesting Doll
Who is this pretty lady with eyes like cornflowers and cheeks like apples? Matryoshka is an ancient Russian toy and one of the symbols of Russian culture.
Traditionally, nesting dolls are made from wood but this doll is different because it is made from opaque and transparent color glass, and hand painted using unfired paints.
If handled with care, glass products will last almost forever. Decades after they were made, their colors remain bright and brilliant. Humidity, temperature fluctuations or exposure to sunlight won't damage them.
