This Soviet Matryoshka doll is actually a thermos bottle, but usually these dolls accommodate similar dolls of decreasing size inside them.
Hi, a Matryoshka doll is usually a wooden nested doll which contains similar dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other. Traditionally, the outer layer depicts a rural woman, dressed in a Sarafan, which is a long traditional Russian dress. The innermost doll is typically a baby doll from a single piece of wood.
