Semenov Cosmonaut (Космонавт). The classic cosmonaut Matryoshka doll produced for the Soviet space exploration program and refined down through the years. This is the mid-1980s version with classic painted features and lathe work. The style was featured as large and small bottle holders. On the bottom of the first doll is the "Made in Russia" orange paper label with the product code written by hand. These labels were attached to dolls that were made and stockpiled prior to the breakup of the Soviet Union. They were attached for import reasons to indicate the "new" country from which they came was now Russia, not USSR. 8" to 3½". A very well-crafted and popular vintage doll. 1 only, as shown.
