Matryoshka Dolls

The history of the Russian Matryoshka begins with their first appearance in a Moscow arts and crafts workshop at the end of the 19th century. Japan's template was borrowed and expanded upon and Russian artists have never looked back. 

A wide variety of vintage and contemporary art dolls from various areas of Russia, including Sergiev-Posad, Abramtsevo and Moscow, can be found here. Dolls from the 1990s have the most varied themes, when freedom of expression was given full reign after decades of suppression under Soviet rule. Here you will find exquisite masterpieces by  dolls with fairy tales and children's stories, animal tales, and specialized dolls, including political dolls, Royal Family of Russia with exquisite portraiture, chess dolls, seasonal dolls and just plain unique dolls. Have fun browsing!
