Johnny Gruelle created Raggedy Ann back in 1915, and shortly thereafter Raggedy Andy. Now, finally, Raggedy Andy has his very own nesting doll, and he comes celebrating Raggedy Ann's 90th birthday. This officially licensed nesting doll depicts Raggedy Andy bringing a cake to his sister's party. The Camel with Wrinkled Knees follows, with balloons, and gifts to add to the party cheer. Golden Cockerel is pleased to bring you this historic combination of Russian tradition and classic Americana; it's a nesting doll that will win a special place in your heart. Production Techniques: Hand Painting. This doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, then delivered to the Golden Cockerel workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia. Our artists painstakingly hand paint every detail, beginning with backgrounds and moving to the finer elements that require a brush of very select Siberian squirrel hair. It is daunting to think of the time and talent invested in each of the nesting pieces! Finally we baptize each doll in multiple layers of non-toxic water-based lacquer to make a marvelous matryoshka that will delight children and collectors. The bottom of the largest doll gets stamped with Golden Cockerel’s “Made in Russia” mark of quality, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. Copyright Simon & Schuster, Inc.
