Brest Gnomes with Mining Tools. This set is sometimes referred to as "The Seven Dwarfs". They are brightly painted with the primary colors of red, blue, green, yellow, brown and orange. Each character carries a mining tool, such as a pick, shovel, chisel, rope and the payoff:  a bag full of jewels. 7 nest, 4¾" to ½". Late 1980s. "Made in USSR" label. Brand new condition. Glossy lacquer finish.  (Several, but not many, available.)

Brest (formerly Brest-Litovsk) is a city in Belarus at the border of Poland. Dolls from Brest were labeled "Made in the USSR" during the time Belarus was part of the USSR. For a long time, the Brest Matryoshka factory was quite the prolific production center for unusual matryoshkas. Their dolls use birch wood, instead of the more traditional, and softer, linden wood, and are painted in bright colors. Dolls can either be glossy lacquer or matte lacquer. Several significant importers, including Shelmar Imports of NJ, had a direct relationship with the factory and even helped to design some of the specialty dolls for the American market.
