Semenov

Dolls from Semenov (Матрешки из Семенова ) Collectible Russian Matryoshka Dolls. Semenov ("Семёнов") is sometimes spelled "Semyonov" and sometimes "Semeonov". It is both the name of a distinct ornamental style and a town in Nizhni-Novgorod ("Нижний Новгород"), as well as the name of the doll factory which produces these charming toys. The terms are used interchangeably. The matryoshka from Semenov has a lot in common with Khokhloma painting, another form of art beloved of Old Russia's culture. During the latter half of the 20th century, these classical and traditional Semenov doll sets were the most ubiquitous as well as the most formal of matryoshka designs. We hope you enjoy browsing through our catalog of vintage collectible dolls from Semenov.
