Would you believe the very first nesting doll, created well over 100 years ago, was meant to be a sort of promotional item? The doll depicted a peasant family and symbolized the simple life of the countryside--she was the artist's attempt to promote interest in Russia's romantic past.

And she was a huge success! The novelty of the nesting figures has captured the imagination of everyone who holds them, one generation after the next. The charm of the medium itself captures the audience. There is profound beauty in its simple complexity.

So take this winning medium, fashion it into just the right shape, and say with it what you will. It's fun. It's unique. Collectible. Memorable. Fascinating! It's a conversation piece. People will talk about you!

Give us your idea, and supply us with your artwork if you like, and we'll design a product to your satisfaction. Insofar as we start from scratch (taking the trees from the Russian forest), we will hand carve your doll in as many pieces as befits your project, and in any shape. If a mid-to-high end product is desired, we'll hand paint your images onto the dolls, making them as exquisite or simple as the project demands. A high gloss lacquer will make the finished product shine.
