This vintage set of five Russian nesting dolls (matryoshka) looks like a group of siblings, all marked by heavy gold foil decoration and finished in the original, smooth wood, which highlights the gold leaf design and decorative burning.
The tallest doll stands 3" high while the smallest matryoshka is about 1/2". Each is beautifully decorated by hand with colored facial features and a burnt wood floral motif, all accented with thick gold foil. The smiling faces have cheery pink cheeks, bright blue eye shadow with long lashes and thick brown hair.
There is no signature or maker's mark on any piece. These are not newly manufactured reproductions but original handcrafted dolls.
This vintage set is in excellent condition. They were acquired at an estate auction in Jacksonville, FL.
