Set 10 Russian carved & paint decorated wood Matryoshka nesting dolls. Decorated with monasteries and cathedrals with silver gilt highlights. A stark white robe emblematic of snow outlined with raised beading. Expressive facial features and eyes. Very accomplished and intricate work. The largest doll measures 8 1/2" tall x 4 1/2" diameter. Good condition - some wear on the smaller dolls. A rare and unusual color scheme.
