Matryoshka "Counting" Nesting Toy.  Ten brightly painted miniature girls emerge from the mother. Semenov had a tradition of producing colorful and whimsical toys to instruct developing young minds. This set was made to teach children to count and recognize colors as well as to develop manual dexterity. Hand painted in Semenov, near Moscow. Child-safe materials (though not intended for children under 3 years old). The hen is 5½" tall and each of the mini maidens are 1¾" tall. "Made in USSR" paper label on the bottom of the big doll from the late 1980s. Each of the maiden is stamped in black "Made in Russia" for export (see below). Still has the silk-screened box in which doll came, though paper is foxed (brown spots) and has a dark stain from moisture. Still neat, though. Condition is very good, light wear to back of the large doll. 1 only, as shown.

During the collapse of the Iron Curtain in 1991, many of the handicraft products, such as toys, nesting dolls, etc., that had been made and stockpiled in 1988, 1989 and 1990 for export, had to be quickly labeled "Made in Russia". Thus, production values of the Soviet Union carried over for a while until capitalism settled in causing the values to erode and prices to go up.
