This is a toy with weight attached to base causing it always to recover its standing and to make a pleasant sound. It is made of birch wood. All the operations do not involve any measurement and rely on intuition and require great skill. After the turning work on a lathe is done the dolls are cleaned, primed with starchy glue to make its surface smooth, polished and now are ready for painting. After having been hand-painted they are dried for several days. Then the doll is ready for the lacquer to be applied. The doll measures 4" tall and 2 1/4" at the bottom part.
