Four craftsmen of the factory, including Vugamali Magomedaliyev, an enchaser, had chosen a wild pear tree as the material. The stem was being dried for as long as 3 years. Then, for 6 months the craftsmen were laying the German silver ornamental patterns and the coats of arms, polishing the jar being determined to make yet another masterpiece of Untsukul.

The republican delegation to Petersburg's festivities will offer the jar along with other presents from the Daghestani people.
