Genuine Imported Russian Dolls
Genuine hand-painted Russian dolls imported from all corners of Russia. There's Lena (left) who paints from her apartment in Sergiev-Posad, Anna works from her home in St. Petersberg, and then there's Sergey who has his own workshop in Moscow. Each artist produces the most gorgeous, hand-painted Russian dolls each in their own unique style.
So, how are your Russian nesting dolls made? Well, in 2010 we were lucky enough to visit the markets of Moscow with Lena and she showed us how she completes her work. At 6am every Wednesday morning she makes the journey into Moscow in order to visit Izmailovsky market. There, she buys both the wood-turned dolls from local carpenters, and the paints she needs in order to complete her designs. Back home, she stencils her patterns onto the dolls and then paints over them in two or three different layers. It really is amazing to watch, and it is a fantastic skill that has been passed through the generations.
These Russian dolls are perfect for those who love to receive elegant gifts. They are also especially popular with children. The dolls look beautiful on display, and will be admired by all who see them!
