A traditional Russian "samovar" or hot water tea kettle from around 1900 can no longer be used, the interior has been altered. Originally there was a center chimney for hot coals to heat water.
Solid brass with rich deep patina, this samovar has a few dings for character. There are Cyrillic signature stamps on this antique pot. The English stamp, "Orig. Made 1870," means this samovar was made for export from Russia.
Size is 15" across, 15" deep and 16 1/2" tall.
