Vintage Mordva (Мордовия) Matryoshka Nesting Doll. A truly unusual vintage Mordva set with a winter theme. The first, and only, one we've ever seen. She has yellow mittens, a brown fur coat and classic Mordva decorations featured on this one. Please note that this doll was a 7 nest at one time but someone or thing (a squirrel perhaps?) tried to dig out an inner doll (see the picture) and failed miserably. All other pieces have been lost. 6⅛" down to 2¾. Doll sold "as is". Comes with the original Russian language paper label. Circa 1985. 1 only. 

The Republic of Mordovia, or Mordvinia, has been a federal republic of Russia since 1994. When this doll was made - in the late 1980s - Mordovia had been part of the Soviet Union since the 1930s and was known as Mordovian Autonomous Socialist Soviet Republic (Mordovian ASSR). The republic is located in the eastern part of Russia. The Mordvins are predominantly Christian and are related to the Mari and the Finns.
