Russian Army of 1812 ((Российская армия 1812). The Russian Army in 1812 consisted of three main armies and other military formations. The Commander in Chief was Emperor Alexander I. We are not sophisticated enough to figure out who is who in this nicely painted matryoshka doll from the 1993, but there is probably a General, a Major, a Captain and a Corporal. The very last doll (the kernel, so to speak) is a peasant ready to fight with a hatchet and a stick. There is a scroll on the back of the first doll with the Russian word "Borodino" (Бородино), which is a reference to the Battle fought in September of 1812 during the Napoleonic Wars - a great milestone in Russian history. This scroll shows a simplified battle map. "Russian Army 1812" (Российская армия 1812) written on the base of the first doll. The Battle of Borodino was enshrined in poetry and song by Mikhail Lermontov. The soldiers depicted in various uniforms are of old Russian stock reminiscent of the bogatyrs "Usinet" and "Usinya" - the Mustached Ones. These are fully painted dolls, 7¼" in height (18.4cm). In excellent condition. 1 set only, as shown.
