Argentine Maidens. 7 nest, 4½" in height down to less than inch.  

The nesting doll here described has an unusual history. A small enterprising group of Russians who were displaced by World War II settled in Argentina after the war. One family, keepers of the flame at the time, created a modest workshop and began making a limited number of handicrafts, including matryoshka nesting dolls consisting of 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 pieces. These sets were like miniature jewels, made from indigenous birch-like wood and nicely decorated and painted. As quickly as these dolls came to the marketplace, they disappeared. 7 nest, 4½" in height down to less than inch. 1 only, as shown.

Refer to Collector's Guide to Nesting Dolls by Michele Lefkovitz, pg 150, 153-54.
