A nephrite cup was involved in the filming of the fantasy series “The Secret City” (TriStar Pictures film studio, an adaptation of the eponymous series of books by Vadim Panov) as a magic cup.
The cup is a worthy gift for a respected person to emphasize the owner’s status. The cup can be used for its intended purpose, it can also decorate home or office interiors.
This cup is made of noble nephrite which from ancient times was called the stone of heaven and earth, wisdom and eternity. More than 2 thousand years ago, the great Chinese thinker Confucius noted the value of nephrite as a symbol of virtue. It was in China where the level of nephrite processing reached unprecedented heights: insignia of the nobles, magnificent carvings (vases, table sculpture), household and religious items, and various ornaments were cut out of this stone. The cup is decorated with metal plates with engraved patterns, inlaid with jewelry stones. The combination of nephrite and metal plated with gold of the highest standard is pleasing to the eye and involuntarily takes you to the times of the distant past.
