Warning: Nesting dolls with small parts present a choking hazard. The primary safety concern with nesting dolls is that many of them contain small parts that might cause an infant to choke. Therefore, very few nesting dolls are appropriate for children 3 years of age, or younger. Please do not let your children put nesting dolls into their mouths!

To pay homage to the century-old art form of the Matryoshka, we proudly introduce our "Peasant Matriarch" also known as "The Rooster Girl" - a faithful replica of the first Russian nesting doll created in the 1890s by toy makers outside Moscow. Made in the tradition of the very early matryoshkas, she has woodburned outlines, an antique palette, and matte finish. Even the shape is true to the old style of doll. To hold her in the hand is to love her! This historical collector's item belongs in every nesting doll collection! She is the Mona Lisa of the matryoshka world. A Golden Cockerel exclusive fully handpainted in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Production Techniques: Hand Painting. This nesting doll was carved in the Upper Volga region, the Russian center of nesting doll carving. The carved pieces were assembled, doll inside a doll, and 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 nesting doll quality, initialed by the artist, and dated like a true collectible. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
