Thorsten Van Elten

If you love Russian matroska (nesting) dolls, these simple modern Maxim Velcovsky matroskas in bright and colorful porcelin should catch your eye. When I first saw them, I thought they were paint-by-number matroskas, something I’ve been looking for over the years but can never seem to find them. Do you happen to know of a resource?
Shake, shake, shake! Shake, shake, shake! Shake your booty! Or, you can sit your booty down for dinner and simply shake your booty salt + pepper shakers from Thorsten Van Elten. Made of bone china in the UK by Camila Prada, sold as a set of 2.

    I still have the nesting dolls my parents bought while on a trip to Russia while my mother was preggers with me! I think they are in storage though . . .

    I like this modern take. Very fun!

    Paint-your-own-Matryoshkas (or nesting dolls) can be found all over the internet. Google it to find a seller in your area. I bought mine at Urban Outfitters (Toronto and Montreal locations have them) but they’re all over the web.
