This is a high quality replica of half Pitcher, mounted on a wood board. This vessel is part of the Golden Treasure of Nagyszentmiklos (9th century AD). It is also known as the jug of the Bulgarian khan Kubrat.
The treasure, consisting of 23 gold vessels and variously dated from the 6th to the 10th century, was found on 3 July 1799 by Neru Vuin, a Serb farmer, in the vicinity of Sânnicolau Mare / Groß-Sankt-Niklaus / Nagyszentmiklos.
The technique used for this replica is called “galvanoplastic”, which allows an exact replica to be made, but with a much lighter material. Our team of designers creates a precise carving on a silicone mold in which we pour wax. The wax takes the form of the object, which after that we cover with metal through galvanoplasty process, and finish it with gold cover.
Each item, produced as replica of the Thracian Treasures, comes with a mandatory certificate, issued by the Bulgarian National Historical Museum (Sofia, Bulgaria).
