Tver Maiden (Тверская Дева) Chime Doll. Not a nesting doll, but a chime. Shake her and she creates a beautiful melody. This cute doll from Kalinin is different in style from other doll production centers such as Semenov, Viatka (Nolinsk), Semenov or Polkhovsky Maidan dolls. The wood is linden and many of the decorative elements are pyrographically created. The colors are bright and the paint thickly applied. Faces are happy and playful. Circa 1989. Brand new condition. 4½ tall. 1, as shown.  

These dolls (Калининская Матрешка) came from the city of Kalinin, situated on the Upper Volga River. After 1991, many city names were restored to their pre-Soviet names. Thus, Kalinin was changed back to Tver, its medieval name. This matryoshka was actually made in the late 1980s, but imported to the United States in 1992. Thus they span two distinctly different political systems!
