Jug, a treasure replica of Nad Saint Michoch

There is no doubt that the treasure of Nad Sent Mikloch belonged to khan Asparuh. The treasure was discovered more than two centuries ago by Bulgarian gardeners.

In 1799, on July 3, near the Banat village of Nad Sent Miklos (back then in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, today in Romania), the two brothers, gardeners Hristo and Kiril Naki, find it in the excavation of his garden. The brothers are from Northern Bulgaria but settled in Banat and when they cultivate their garden at a depth of 50-60 cm, they encounter a gold object. They dilute the soil carefully and find a total of 23 vessels made of gold, with a total weight of 10 kg.

The brothers give the treasure as a present to the Austrian Emperor Joseph II, for which they are richly rewarded. They are given even a noble title.

The treasure is currently displayed to visitors at the Vienna Art History Museum.

The exhibits come from different cultures. The motifs and images of heterogeneous character are sometimes combined in the same vessel. The golden jug is also decorated with such motifs. Most Bulgarian researchers consider the image to be a Bulgarian horseman in the first scene. The second one depicts a riding creature with an animal body and a human head, turning his back and firing at the panther. The third scene depicts a griffin that attacks the deer. The latter presents an eagle, grabbing a naked female figure.

The replica is made of copper and galvanized with 24-carat gold.

 Dimensions of the replica - height 20 cm, width 12 cm.

The replica is extremely suitable for protocol gifts!
