INFORMATION

Size Largest: 17.5 cm or 7 inches 
Set of: 5
Finish: Glossy

The golliwog or golly was a black character in children’s books in the late 19th century usually depicted as a type of rag doll.

The origins of the Golliwog began with the British soldiers who occupied Egypt near the end of the nineteenth century.

The Egyptian labourers working for the British wore the letters W.O.G.S. on their armbands, indicating that they were Working On Government Service.

As all of our matrysohka babushka 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.
