By Linda Holderbaum

As interest in Russia increases, increased value and attention are focused on its history-rich ethnic dolls, and this is the only comprehensive resource available. For those who collect, deal in, or appraise dolls from the 1920s to the 1980s, here are essential tips on identification; helpful resource documents such as rare postcards, advertising, and press photos; and over 800 photos of Russian dolls dressed in costumes representing Russian historical periods, as well as those featuring various ethnic cultures. Begins in the 1920s with antique dolls of bisque and cloth stockinette, then travels into the 1930s and 1940s for the composition dolls, and moves on to the 1960s through the 1980s, when the USSR was showcasing its fifteen republics with dolls of plastic. Also covers dolls representing various folklore characters, as well as the popular Russian tea cozy dolls.
