I bought this at my very first estate sale. It was at a beautiful ocean view estate belonging to a local artist family. While hundreds of people waited in line to get in and once in, hovered over the paintings, silver, jewelry and stuff, I found this pretty little nesting set. It was $2!!
Just wanted to share!!

    hi. sweet nesting dolls. i am trying to guess from what country they are from: poland, italy or even german :) does the bottom of the first doll have any info: stamp, label, etc? just curious :) nice find

    Hi.. thanks for the note... There is nothing on the bottom. I am interested to know where they might have been made.

    hi again! i had a little email conversation with a nesting doll collector. they believe your dolls were made in italy. the side glancing blue eyes was the biggest clue to their origin. i saw some of his dolls from italy (this collector has samples of all ages and from all countries!!!) and sure do like them. so, you got some sweet italy nesting dolls. circa 1950s-early 60s. congrats :) and happy holidays.

    Hi munequita... You are awesome for looking into it for me. I had no idea these were made in Italy... Or that Italy made them... Thanks so much... Have a happy holidays.
