A specialized, "crystal" workshop of Europe's largest military shipyard Sevmashpredpriyatie (the city of Severodvinsk in Russia's Arkhangelsk region) produces unique Easter eggs.

And the product is in a tremendous demand in the West, as there are just few producers in the world who still continue handmade engraving of crystal eggs. This very handmade engraving is highly appreciated by real connoisseurs.

The Biblical legend says: repentant sinner Maria Magdalina called a painted egg presented to Judaea procurator Pontius Pilatus the symbol of birth and sufferings on the Earth. According to the modern legends, only articles that a master made by hands keep the warmth of the master's soul.

Sevmashpredpriyatie decided to retain only handmade engraving of crystal in the production of the enterprise. The specialized crystal works has been operating at the military shipyard within 20 years, and during the whole period the enterprise managed to preserve handmade engraving of crystal articles. The unique 32nd crystal workshop produces whisky glasses, wine beakers, salad bowls and other things that are further supplied to nuclear submarines of the Russian Navy. At that, the things have special ship heraldry engraved on them.

The crystal Easter eggs produced at the Severodvinsk enterprise are particular; they are remarkable for the design and the fabrication method: they are hollow inside. It means, these eggs will preserve "the spirit of the present" forever, you know, crystal is eternal material.

Glass and crystal are considered "the material of the third millennium" in the West. This is the reason why the eggs produced in the Russian northern city are in demand there. In conclusion, we would like to say that now even private persons (including foreigners) can order crystal products of the Sevmashpredpriyatie enterprise.
