Russia With Love is located in Copperhill, Tennessee. We import
all of our Nesting Dolls and other items directly from the artists
are Russian wooden dolls with smaller dolls stacked within the bigger
ones. In provincial Russia before the revolution the name Matryona
or Matriyosha was a very popular female name. It was derived from
the Latin root 'mater' which means 'mother'.
name was associated with the image of a mother of a big family who
was very healthy and had a portly figure. Subsequently, it became
a symbolic name and was used specially to describe brightly painted
wooden dolls made in such a way that they could be taken apart to
reveal smaller dolls fitting inside one another.

from the most traditional, to entertainment themes, and sports figures
