Milashechka (Милашечка). This cute matryoshka came from Kalinin and her name translated into English is, appropriately enough, "Little Cutie"! She differs from her counterparts from Viatka, Kirov, Nolinsk, Semenov or Polkh-Maidan. Heavier linden wood is used and many decorative elements are burnt in. The colors are bright and the paint thickly applied. Faces are happy and playful. She is 6 nested - from 4" down to 1". 1 only, as shown.

Kalinin matryoshka dolls((Калининская Матрешка) came from the city of Kalinin, situated on the Upper Volga River. After 1991, many city names were restored from their 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 are cross between two distinct political systems!
