The casket case is decorated using the Zlatoust engraving technique in the form of an intricate floral ornament in the Baroque style. The metal surface is plated with nickel and gold. For the second century in a row, the Zlatoust metal engraving is an original and rare kind of Russian craft. It was born at the beginning of the 19th century as a way of decorating author’s edged weapons made at the Armory founded by decree of Tsar Alexander I.
Each casket of the masters of Zlatoust is a vivid example of handmade and inspired collective creativity. Weapon makers, artists and engravers worthily keep and develop the Zlatoust traditions of metal decoration. When creating each item, they combine talent, creativity and a high level of performance.
