Polkh Maidan Nested Spice Set. Here is one of the most unusual nesting sets we've encountered. A nifty little set in which each doll has a specific function, either for mustard (powdered, we presume), salt or pepper. About 25 years ago, someone in Russia pyrogravured "Горчица, Соль, Перец" (Mustard, Salt, Pepper) into each successive doll. The first doll has a green ribbon tied in a bow and a smaller yarn bow tie just below. A small blue wire loop on the right side allows for the set to be hung up. An unusual addition to any matryoshka collection and could actually be used! Why buy plastic Matryoshka themes when you can have an original one-of-a-kind "кустарная изделия" (homemade handicraft) from Russia? First doll is 4¼" and last is 2⅜".
