Why did we decide to promote the Rogozen treasure?
If you have the chance to visit the museum in Vratsa, you will come upon an incredible sight: dozens of small dishes, placed in special chambers, as if telling you their own story. Their splendid detail sparkles in the dark, and we can only marvel at how they were made by the ancient craftsmen. We were fascinated by the variety of friezes and shapes, the handles beautifully-drawn with a thin metal pen, the embellishments with mythological motifs (the Great Goddess, the exploits of Heracles), and the images of animals and flowers. This is how we got the idea of reviving their history, of promoting the past, and trying to understand the complexity of the craftsmanship.
We chose several vessels and we put a lot of effort into studying their shapes and friezes, trying to recreate them. As the original jugs are rather small, only 11 cm high, we decided to make ours bigger, so they can be used. So, besides their aesthetic look, all the Rogozen treasure items that we make are usable in everyday life, especially those made of solid silver. We do not make the items artificially aged but, on the contrary, we make them precise and perfect, just as we imagine they were made back in the old times; treasure fit for a Thracian ruler.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the management of the Regional historical museum of Vratsa.
We use a technology as close as possible to that of the ancient craftsmen - we forge the floral motifs with the utmost precision. The priceless historical value of the vessels is due to their ornamentation - floral motifs, fantastic and realistic animals, cult and religious scenes.
If you visit our studio, you will be able to see them and feel the atmosphere in which the treasure is created, and if you are interested, you will be able to see the technology and tools that were used. In other words, you'll be able to have a first-hand view of the craftsmen and their secrets. All the owners of our unique vessels are happy that they are able to enjoy such a unique part of Thracian history in today's fast-paced world. An object that reminds us of the mastery of the people who lived in our lands. These silver objects remain, like a covenant, for the generations to come. Every silver vessel manufactured by Zografov & Son has a seal of authenticity. Everyone can learn the history of the item from the certificate, which is an integral part of the product, and is placed in a luxury box along with the gift; ready to be presented to fulfil its most important mission, to bring joy.

According to recent research by American biologists and epidemiologists, silver is able to cope with new viruses and bacteria, unlike most known antibiotics and antiseptics. It is therefore no surprise that silver water is set to become an antibacterial miracle.

It is interesting and remarkable how much history and how many artifacts there are in a territory as small as Bulgaria. During each excavation, archaeologists find a piece of the life of our ancestors. We are a nation with a rich past, and that is priceless. All these discoveries made by archaeologists are changing scientists' perceptions of the oldest centers of human civilization. The historical artifacts prove that a civilization flourished on the territory of Bulgaria long before the Hellenic one. A culture existed which created items of high artistic value.
‘There are two very real reasons to buy business gifts that are not necessarily warm and fuzzy. One is obviously to thank someone for their business for the year. The other is to make sure you remain top of mind, and to get your name in front.’
To create a unique emotion for your nearest and dearest or to reward your business partner, the desire to leave something for your children, for their children, even for people in hundreds of years, is an irreplaceable feeling and a strong motivation.
Did you know that there are people who prefer their name days to their birthdays? Our name day symbolizes the energy that is encoded in our name. It is part of our individuality and, like the birthday, defines us in the world. Even if we regard this day as a celebration of many people with the same name, it is also an occasion to unite with them and experience a common emotion of the positive energy and good wishes we receive. When choosing a name day present, you need to bear in mind the following....
Майсторските изработки на „Зографов и син“ от злато, сребро и екзотична дървесина се предават от поколения от Андреа Пунчева
Знаете ли, че българските археолози наричат откритието на Рогозенското съкровище “Находката на века”. Една от причините е, че е най-голямото, намирано у нас, дори казват и в Европа.
Когато преди 26 години Николай Зографов решава да се посвети на своето фино изкуство, той не предполага, че след години творенията му ще принадлежат на президенти, дипломати, аристократи, артисти и известни личности от цял свят. Талантливите му ръце извайват съвършени композиции от благородни метали и екзотична дървесина, превръщайки предметите в истински произведения на изкуството.
