The original Russian wooden Matryoshka dolls date from 1890. Matryoshka meaning mother.
The motherhood connection together with the decreasing sizes placed one inside the other symbolize fertility.
The nested doll principle denotes a recognizable relationship of 'similar object-within-similar object' that appears in the design of many other natural and man-made objects also known as the onion metaphor.
The Matryoshka cups are derived from these famous nested dolls. They are often designed to follow a particular theme, in this case it's peasant women and girls in traditional dress.
The different sizes can be used for different kind of drinks. Stacked together they make a surprising stack, at the same time leaving more space in your storage.
