Russian dolls are also called nesting dolls, or, in Russian, matryoshka.

The first set of dolls was made in 1890. A rather recent date, to my surprise. With their little air or folklore, I would have thought these ladies to be much, much older, going back centuries. Turns out they can come in other themes than the peasant costume as well. Some are painted as boys, some as politicians and the smallest one is often depicted as a baby.
