Meet the Owner of Russian Treasure Store

Who I am
My name is Natasha and I would like to thank you for visiting my website. I'd like to tell you something I am very passionate about - Russian Artwork. Since 1992 when I opened my store in the historic distric of San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf, I have started bringing out of Russia very special hand chosen Matryoshka Nesting Dolls, Paper Mache Lacquer Boxes from all 4 villiges - Fedoskino, Palekh, Kholui, Mstera, Faberge style eggs, Baltic Ember jewelry, and other Russian and Soviet collectors items. So, how did it all start?

I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg and throughout my life, especially during my years in St. Petersburg University majoring in Russian Art and Literature, I have passionately loved Russian literature, history, and different forms of folk craftsmanship, that developed into the most fascinating art.

Since 1992, my store in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf has developed into the most unique boutique featuring top quality Russian artwork. For years I have been featuring exclusive artowrk in various categories: Matryoshka Nesting Dolls Paper-Mache Lacquer Boxes (Fedoskino, Palekh, Mstera, Kholui) Faberge Style Egg Pendants Custom designed Baltic Amber Jewelry Pavlovo Posad Scarves Hand-carved Chess Sets Russian and Soviet collector's items, and more...

Unique Matryoshka dolls is my specialty. I am happy to present one-of-a-kind Russian Dolls - Matryoshka Dolls created by dozens of famous artists!

One can clearly distinguish the level of details and the quality of finish that makes these Exclusive Matryoshka Nesting Dolls stand out. These beautiful Matryoshka Nesting Dolls take many months to make. The artists spends as much time on the exquisite finish, consisting of many layers of lacquer, as is spent on the actual painting. As a result, you get a masterpiece painting on the Wooden Nesting Dolls as opposed to the canvas. Please enjoy the exclusive Matryoshka Nesting Dolls found only at Russian Treasure.
