Samovar - German-Russian Social, Cultural & Heritage History
The picture above of the Samovar which was used by a German-Russian family is a contribution to our on-line museum gallery by a person who wishes to remain anonymous for personal reasons. The samovar was used to make tea. To heat the teapot, which sat on top, used hot coals. As the water in the teapot was heated the tea steeped in the pot and got stronger by the minute. Some samovars were very simple in construction and appearance; while others used by the wealthier families had samovars which were very elaborate and costly as in the one you see above. This one stands 22” high and made of polished brass. For the most part they had practical use, but it was also used as a decorative item in the home.
