Regional and Other Vintage

Vintage and collectible Matryoshka dolls from the 1960's-1990's can be found here. These include dolls from Moldova, Yoscar (Yoshkar) Ola, Belarus and Ukraine, Poland, Mari El Republic, Perm, Vladimir and the Moscow region and even the occasional Japanese Kokeshi. It was, after all, the Japanese that first inspired the Russian craft makers, who went on to make the doll their own.
