Lol yep those dolls. So you don’t know what they are called either haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t ask me why but whenever I see them it makes me think of Denmark lol

Hi Wardy

Nice piece for your nan.
My grandad used to make them as toys when he was a boy/teenager in Russia.

I think they are called Matryoshka (nesting) but sometimes ‘babushka’ which meant woman (in traditional sense).

I know that they sometimes used to make them as love gifts to girlfriends or fiance’s (I think because they had no money so would show off skills by carving wood).

Take care
Matthew

That sounds about right ๐Ÿ™‚

So Denmark has nothing to do with them, unless there were some poor Danish wood craftsmen lol
