These Handmade Russian Products are One of a Kind - Most are Signed by the artist

Most of the Father Frost or Father Christmas (We call him Santa) below are the product of artists from the

Famous Russian Bogorodskoye Carving School

In Old Russia before the revolution the name Matryoshka was a very popular female name. It was derived from the Latin root 'mater' which means 'mother'. The name was associated with the image of a staid and sturdy mother of a big family. It also represents "Mother" Russia, the heartland.  Subsequently, it became a symbolic name and was used specially to describe brightly painted wooden dolls made in such a way that they could be taken apart to reveal smaller dolls fitting inside one another. 

Note: High humidity will cause dolls to swell, making it difficult to take apart.  Proper method is to gently twist apart but don't force doll.  Put it aside until humidity is lower for a day or two.  Use Ivory bar soap to lubricate

Russian Matryoshka Dolls

Matryoshka Dolls, nesting dolls, are sets of hollow turned dolls where the dolls are nested one inside the other. Each doll is related to every doll in the set - they might carry a single theme (Santa and his elves) or each doll might be similar in nature (a set of dogs with the smallest being a bone), or represent members of a family, or political figures. The traditional and some more innovative Matryoshka dolls are available today.

There is a trend towards recognizing Matryoshka artists and signed one-of-a-kinds are sometimes available

Russian Father Frost

Here is one of the many talented Russian artists working in his home. This artist is a graduate of the famous Bogorodskoye carving school located outside Moscow founded by a family who have been famous carvers for over 400 years.  Carved from Linden wood and hand decorated with up to 20 coats of lacquer
