This is a set of traditionally painted Russian Dolls. Matryoshka literally means ‘Little Matron’. The name derives from Matryona, a popular female name in the 19th century. Each doll is hand-painted, ensuring each piece is unique.
We hope your Russian doll will give you many years of enjoyment – and even become a treasured heirloom.
To open your Russian doll, please avoid the natural temptation to ‘unscrew’ it by twisting the halves in opposite direction. Instead, just ‘bend’ it apart – as if you a snapping a twig. The halves should gently come apart.
This set of three, brightly painted, ‘Fairy tale Bear’ Russian Dolls have a unique bear character design.
The largest doll in this set measures 11cm tall
Please be aware these dolls are not a toy and contain small parts.
