Playful Kittens ( Шаловливые котята). This fully hand painted set is definitely cute as a button! Each little critter is inspired by a Russian children's book illustration. The kittens play between bluebells and other flowers, but the BIG surprise comes when the third doll is revealed to find a different kind of cat - a baby lion! This elegant matryoshka is one-of-a-kind. It is not a standard tourist doll sold throughout Russia, nor is it a "decal" doll which can be purchased throughout flea markets in Russia. Each piece is fully painted and uses all the available space up to, and including, the very bottoms. Finished with several coats of crystal-clear lacquer. Designed and signed by the artist circa 2000. 3 nest, 4" to 1½". We have only one.
