Say hello to Nadya, Karolina and Vanya! These little Matryoshka dolls were spotted on today's visit to some local charity shops. I happen to love these little Russian dolls and always found them decorative and collectable and these were perfect! I assume they are just souvenirs brought back by someone on a trip to Russia and none of them have any makers marks anywhere on them so I think their just pieces for the tourist market?
The small blue one(Karolina) is one I had already owned and only in fact noticed today she appears to be missing her smallest little doll(or baby?!) The yellow and red doll(Vanya) is a good deal smaller and skinnier than the other fatter and squatter one Nadya(the bright blue doll!)
I'd love to know more about them and what wood they are typically made from? Is it beech?
