As a nesting doll collector, you are probably interested in matryoshkas made in different regions of Russia. We offer traditional nesting dolls made in Semenov, Zagorsk, Polkhovski Maidan, and Nolinsk. This doll comes from the Nolinsk workshop, the only place that applies rye straw to the doll to create a matryoshka of simple, elegant folk beauty. The artist hand cuts small pieces of straw and uses them to create flowery or geometric designs on the doll. The doll stands 4.5 inches tall and contains the delightful number of 6 nesting pieces.
