World's Largest Nesting Dolls

World's Largest Nesting Dolls!
How tall is the world’s biggest nesting doll? How many pieces does it have?A nesting doll is carved from one piece of wood, so its size is limited by the size of the tree and the carver's ability. The largest nesting doll we stock is a blank that 27.5" tall and has 70 pieces. If you have seen a nesting doll with more pieces than this, we invite you to share it here!

To make such a large doll, each piece must be carved paper thin. Such a task requires the skill of a master carver. A matryoshka with so many pieces is truly a rare find in the world of nesting dolls.

This dashing 4" handpainted wooden egg comes with its own 3.5" stand and features a troika--a three-horse sleigh commonly associated with Old Russia--jingling along the walls of the kremlin, where pretty ladies are passing by.  Wrapped around the egg is a lively panorama of Old Russian city life. You will be thrilled with this rare find, just as we were when we happened upon this close-out special we discovered in the basement of an out-of-business Russian jeweler.  Egg and stand together measure about 7.5" tall for quite an impressive display.  These vintage Moscow troika eggs are signed on the bottom by aritst N. Izotova.
