In the 1920s and early 1930s four series of wonderfully made all cloth stockinette dolls were made representing the peoples of the newly formed soviet union (the ussr: the union of soviet socialist republics -- what they abbreviated as cccp in the cyrillic alphabet. ) these are extremely collectible today, tho they are often only found in pretty tough shape. By the mid 1930s the production of these dolls were over, as the ussr was evolving and the people were moving and changing. Collectively there are less than 50 types of these small stockinette russian dolls, each in a type of series depicting regions or lifestyles or culture. Money was sparce, the dolls were made with care and raw materials available at hand. They have wires internally, are stuffed with cloth and wear simple bland colored garments. Their heads are socks, hand painted and their heads typically were covered with a hat or scarf as mohair was hard to obtain. Their unique shoes, called lapti, consisted of woven reeds or bast tied with cords over cotton leg basting. On the century old dolls here, they are somewhat worn.... For people who wore these in russia day after day you can imagine how hard it would be to have them last a week! The dolls have stockinette (stocking) heads that are molded and hand painted, with very simple drab colored clothing. Again these dolls were very representative of the era of the soviet union in the early 1900s. Under the garments is sewn a small white label indicating which doll is which, again there were less than 50 variations made. The boy reads "made in soviet union peasant boy" and the girl reads "made in soviet union riazan village girl". We see much history in art, music, books, and more.... These are dolls that you can truly see and feel the history.... Times long ago when perhaps only this doll or 2 brought any joy or smile to a starving, depraved human in the ussr in the 1920s... These dolls are priceless!!! (value $100-1000)
