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 6-piece doll is Golden Cockerel's version of the doll that matches the matryoshka in the book.  It is not the common Semenov doll you can find just anywhere, but has Golden Cockerel’s extra attention to detail and quality.  Most importantly, we produce this doll with paints that have been tested and verified as child-safe, meeting all CPSIA requirements.  Because we produce this doll in our own workshop, we can vouch for its toy safety compliance.  A great first nesting doll for young collectors.
