A brief annotation National artistic trades are the forms of folk art, the production of art objects. The craft of painted trays originated in the middle of XVIII century in the Urals and only in the first half of the XIX century the trays are manufactured in villages of the Moscow province. Zhostovo factory dates back to a workshop (opened in 1825) of former peasants – the Vishnyakov’s brothers who bought off at will. In 1928, some cooperatives united in one - "Metallopodnos" in the village of Zhostovo, which later (in 1960) was transformed into Zhostovo factory. The painting on the trays is usually made on a black background (sometimes red, blue, green, and silver). The main motive of the painting - floral bouquets of simple composition in which large garden flowers alternate with small wildflowers. By its shape the trays can be round, octagonal, combined, rectangular, oval, etc.
