3 Matryoshka dolls
Matryoshka dolls date from 1890. They are not a traditional Russian handicraft although the concept of nested objects was familiar in Russia. The first set of dolls is said to have been made by a painter in the Abramtsevo estate inspired by a set of Japanese wooden dolls representing the Seven Gods of Fortune.
