I just purchased this set of Nesting Dolls for my mom as a present. I have purchased many nesting dolls from Great Russian Gifts over the years, but these were truly magnificent! The care and artistry that went into creating this set of nesting dolls was amazing. I am always so happy when I purchase items from Great Russian Gifts. Authentic Russian products from Russian artisans. I love knowing that when I purchase these items I am helping out these gifted artists!
