Gzhel Bluebird Matryoshka Doll. The painting on this doll set is very detailed and beautiful painted. It is an older art doll with many enhancements. The contrast of the blue birds on the milk-white background - an homage to the blue and white decorative painting of Gzhel - (and which the artist has titled the doll on the bottom), is a delight. The lacquering is silky smooth. Signed by the artist (Xenia Denisova) and dated 1992. 5½" tall, 5 nest. We have one only.
(Condition notes: there are two small cracks at the base of the first doll where it would appear it was dropped. The cracks are not particularly visible unless you look closely. Also, a bit of chipping at the middle of doll #4, also not especially noticeable.)
