Who doesn’t love a set of Matryoshka Dolls? Retro and timeless, these dolls all fit inside the largest Matryoshka. Children and adults alike love them.
This is a 5 set of BLACK CAT dolls.
The photos show the cat family on glass. They are standing on blue tack, it’s not part of the doll!!
They arrive in an organza gift bag.
It should be noted that I would not recommend them for children under school age. The smallest doll is teeny, about the size of a grain of rice.
They are well painted with even the smallest having a face .
Please open your doll on a plate until you have seen how small they are.
All our Matryoshka Dolls in Gustafs Studio and Gallery, Peebles, come from a town just North of Moscow called Sergiev Posad. They are hand turned and hand painted by artists who train for years to learn this traditional craft.
The Dolls are all made from one piece of lime wood, starting with the smallest baby. They are all made to fit inside each other.
Due to the nature of hand made items, there are slight colour differences and sizes between the dolls. I have taken photos of the general set which you are likely to receive.
The largest cat matryoshka Doll is 4 cm – 5 cm tall. Sizes are appropriate.
Please look carefully at the photos, the smallest two dolls are photographed beside a 5 pence coin for scale. You can always remove the smallest dolls until the child is older.
