matryoshka dolls

I’ve always had a thing for matryoshka, or russian nesting dolls. Maybe it’s the mom in me, or maybe it’s the fact that I so identify with their “shapely” figures? 😉

Anyhow, I picked up a few adorable sets last week. All in perfect condition, all stamped USSR on the bottom.

set of five

set of seven

and how flipping cute is the mama with her 10 chicks?

Tattered Tiques isn’t open for the next two weeks, but these will be in the shop the week after. They are $22 per set.

If any (or all) of these blow your skirt up, shoot me an email and I can ship them to you.

ALL are SOLD. Thanks!

Before I scoot, here are some of my favorite matryoshka doll things found on pinterest!

  1. I love Matryoshka dolls, too. I don’t come across them very often in this area, but when I do I try to scoop them up.

  5. LOVE the mama and her chicks, how cute! I have a set, they still live at my parents house though and I don’t remember how little they get, but my mom has a set that gets SO small that the littlest is the size of a grain of rice. That makes me want to play with them now. 🙂

  6. I love them too! especially since we have 3 children from Russia! I have a nice collection of them as every time we travelled over (7 times) we would buy more and more. Love the hen and the little chicks too!

    Your post made me smile. Thank you for sharing this!
