It's a coincidence that I really love these dolls and have gotten a few over the years. The big one is from a Russian store I went to while I was in San Francisco about six years ago. There are at least 24 dolls inside the big one. The tiny one is only like the size of half of your pinky nail!! It takes a long time to open all of them though!
She is entirely hand painted, and the artist used gold in some of the details. It was just something I had to have when I saw it. Went to the store every day for a week before making the purchase, but I still love it and have great memories whenever I take her out. So, thank you, Jess, for such a great tea cozy to have next to her in the dining room!!
