Background Information
  • It is difficult to believe that the nesting doll, what some might consider the embodiment of Russian culture, was just born some 100 years ago. Nesting doll history began in the 1890s. Artists turned to Russia’s peasantry for the thread that would unite the country with its past.

Background Information
  • The art form caught on quickly. In 1900 one of the Russian wooden dolls was taken to a show in Paris, where it received an award.
  • The nesting doll’s shape and concept became a canvas for renderings of political figures, illustrating Russian fairy tales, creating religious icons, and much more. Virtually any image one could imagine can be adapted to its versatile shape.

  • The world has seen many changes in the past century, but the nesting doll has remained very much the same, takingus back to a simpler time.
  • Many are committed to ensuring that this is one tradition that won’t fade into obscurity, including one company, Golden Cockerel Crafts. Jointly located in Boone, North Carolina and St. Petersburg, Russia, Golden Cockerel is striving to ensure the survival of the nesting doll, Russia’s past and the cottage industry.
