Zhostovo hammered trays are created according to the old tradition of hand smithery. Hammered trays owe their configuration, size and proportion to the artistic feeling of a smith.

Guitar-like, round, octangular and rectangular shapes of a hammered tray is what Zhostovo borrowed from Nizhny Tagil in the 19th century. Zhostovo smiths perfected and diversified them. Also the idea of carved handles and smooth curves at the border of a tray belongs to Zhostovo masters of smithery.

Every hammered tray which was created at the Zhostovo Decorative Art Manufactory has got its own special number. Quality of a hammered tray is endorsed by a certificate. The certificate also contains the name of a smith who created a tray and the name of the artist who painted it.

Each hammered tray is hand painted and as an object of art has only one life.  There were cases when artists attempted  to make copies of their own trays but  the mystery of the tradition and  the mystery of  inspiration  almost zeroes chances of  repetition. 

Hammered trays are packed in beautiful hand made boxes that follow the shape of the tray.
