AG01. Large Kirov Maidens 8n 6"
Kirov (now Viatka):
The town of Viatka (formerly Kirov) is about 200 miles northwest of Moscow.
Kirov maidens have orange hair, and large solid black eyes. Modern sets are often decorated with straw or wheat inlaid patterns.
These traditional Kirov maidens have orange hair and yellow scarves with the traditional fingerprint swirl. The face and front of the dolls are left as natural wood, and the dolls are painted with large bouquets of flowers. As is typical the smaller dolls have less and less detail, and the smallest doll in this set is mostly plain except for a dot on her head for hair and tiny dots for her eyes and mouth.
