Flowers and fruit
There are 30 or 31 days in a month, and at times one blacksmith needs all of them to hammer a sophisticated tray. Luckily there are 32 beautiful and simple shapes that masters may entrust to the electric press.
Trays of each stamped shape have got marking of goods from А-1 to А-32, and each marking is tied to a fixed price regardless of blackground colour and subject of art. One may easily guess that artists don't call the shapes by their number-names and most of the trays have the most darling nicknames. For example, A-1 goes by "Little flower", A-2 is called "Palm of a little hand", A-20 bare a name of "Ringlets".
Each tray created at the Zhostovo Decorative Art Manufactory is painted by hand, has several layers of authentic Zhostovo painting and is signed by the artist.
Flowers and fruit is the most natural subject for a Zhostovo tray. In the dawn of the 19th century some artists would travel to other areas and sketch flowers that caught their eye. Returning home they would share sketches with other painters. As a result first Zhostovo flowers didn't look quite realistic and it became traditional for this place to paint flowers that looked absolutely alive yet slightly differed from any flower grown on Earth.
Mystery and metaphysics of Zhostovo flowers also overwhelms some of the fruit still-lifes. Shining apples, transparent grapes, enigmatic purple plums blow up the dark space of a tray with an "unlocal" light.
Each tray may be wrapped in a the perfectly fitting wonderful box .
