Fanciful Russian Folk Art. A symbol of maternity and Russia itself, the first Russian nested doll, or matryoshka, dates to 1890. Celebrating this colorful tradition, the blown-glass Matryoshka Carafe is a delightful companion whose head is both lid and cup. 10.3"h. x 5.25"dia.
A popular collectible, a number of these folk art dolls reside in the Division of Home and Community Life of our National Museum of American History.
