Russian Nesting Dolls

Nesting dolls are most popularly associated with Russia and are the quintessential Russian souvenir. They are also called matryoshka dolls. Russian nesting dolls are made in various shapes, sizes, and numbers and are decorated with many different themes and techniques.

Russian nesting dolls are typically painted to look like women in traditional Russian clothing and they are usually brightly colored, but some can be plain, decorated with a wood burning technique, or embellished with gold paint.

If you want to give a Russian nesting doll as a gift, you should consider the tastes of the recipient. Humorous nesting dolls, that depict familiar historic characters or celebrities can be found in the largest markets. These dolls may have more masculine appeal. Delicately painted dolls with many smaller dolls inside make wonderful gifts for the most important people in your life.
