INFORMATION

Size (container doll): 16 cm or 6.5 inches 
Finish: Gloss 

Old Russian folk tale with all its characters (beautifully crafted wooden figurines).
Hurry! Only one set available. 

 

 

This set presents the Russian fairy-tale ‘Kolobok’ (the Bun).

Once there lived an old man and old woman. The old man said,

“Old woman, bake me a bun.”
“What can I make it from? I have no flour.” “Eh, eh, old woman! Scrape the cupboard, sweep the flour bin, and you will find enough flour.”
The old woman picked up a duster, scraped the cupboard, swept the flour bin and gathered about two handfuls of flour.
She mixed the dough with sour cream, fried it in butter, and put the bun on the window sill to cool. The bun lay and lay there. Suddenly it rolled off the window sill to the bench, from the bench to the floor, from the floor to the door. Then it rolled over the threshold to the entrance hall, from the entrance hall to the porch, from the porch to the courtyard, from the courtyard trough the gate and on and on
The bun rolled along the road and met a hare.
“Little bun, little bun, I shall eat you up!” said the hare. “Don’t eat me, slant-eyed hare! I will sing you a song,” said the bun, and sang:
I was scraped from the cupboard,
Swept from the bin,
Kneaded with sour cream,
Fried in butter,
And cooled on the sill.
I got away from Grandpa,
I got away from Grandma
And I’ll get away from you, hare!
And the bun rolled away before the hare even saw it move!
The bun rolled on and met a wolf, a bear and a fox….

 

As all of our babushka matryoshka Russian nesting dolls, this one is handcrafted in the heart Russia.
It is hand turned from linden wood and then hand painted by a professional nesting doll artist.
It is a typical nesting doll, and each smaller piece of the set fits into the next larger one.
Each doll is coated with 3-5 layers of crystal clear lacquer.
As with all our dolls this one has been signed by the artist.

*Each doll is handmade and hand-painted, actual sizes and styles may vary slightly
