Four very brightly colored frogs--painted as they are actually found in nature--nest together, one inside the other. At the very center of the bunch you'll be delighted to find what else but a fly! This charming variation on the classic Russian nesting doll makes a fine gift for animal lovers and anyone with a bit of whimsy at heart. A Golden Cockerel exclusive.
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. We can only hope you will give it a good home.
