HALLOWEEN NESTING DOLLS
The Russian "Matryoshka" or Nesting Doll has enjoyed international popularity for over a century. Created by Russian toy makers in the 1890's near Sergiev Posad, one of the busier toy production centers in the country. It was only natural that Sergiev Posad quickly emerged as the first great center of nesting doll production in the early 1900s. These classic style dolls have spread throughout the region with each area having its own variation.
My favorites of course, are the Halloween black cats!
