One of the most popular of the traditional Russian nesting dolls, the Semenov matryoshka nesting doll comes from the village of Semenov in Russia. Painted with rosy cheeks and bright red and yellow colors, she is adorned with a signature red rose on each of the four nesting pieces. Enjoy a taste of Russian countryside tradition with this pretty little babushka.
The nesting doll made her way to Semenov, one of the crafting villages in the Volga area, in 1922. Rather than simply copy the nesting dolls made in Sergiev Posad, the Semenov turners changed her form slightly, simplifying her curves, and their wives painted the matryoshkas in an ancient style unique to their village. After drawing heavy black outlines, the village ladies use aniline dyes to dress their dolls predominantly in yellow and red, then adorn them with Semenov’s signature red rose. The shawl is decorated with a distinctive pattern of spiraling dots produced by “stamping” with a rolled wad of fabric dipped in ink. This primitive, graphic style, stemming from ancient Russian folk art, gained world renown as “THE” Russian matryoshka during the Stalin era, and remains the most familiar nesting doll to us today.
