Caviar has been associated with luxury throughout history. Since ancient times, caviar has been used as food. The name “caviar” comes from the Persian language and means “egg.” Persians in the Caspian Sea were the first to produce caviar; in those days, caviar was used only for medical purposes.
The caviar diah consists of a base, bowl, lid and spoon. The base is made of natural dolerite stone. Dolerite – a stone of igneous rock – has a beneficial effect on the body, helps relieve tension when touched. The glass bowl freezes in zero gravity. The master achieved this effect with the help of golden sturgeon and algae petals supporting the bowl and giving it such lightness. Elements are polished and decorated with handmade engraving by a master engraver using a microscope. The set is completed with cupronickel spoon.
Irems from Zlatoust masters can often be seen at official events of the leading persons of the state. It is their work that decorate the table, indicating a high reception and guest status. Items also often serve as a gift. Government agencies in Russia often purchase items as an expensive gift to their business partners or company executives.
