Huge Antique Copper and Brass Samovar

Samovars are typically crafted out of plain iron, copper, polished brass, bronze, silver, gold, tin, or nickel.
A typical samovar consists of a body, base and chimney, cover and steam vent, handles, tap and key,
crown and ring, chimney extension and cap, drip-bowl, and teapot. The body shape can be an urn, krater, barrel,
cylinder, or sphere.

A traditional samovar consists of a large metal container with a tap near the bottom and a metal pipe running
vertically through the middle. The pipe is filled with solid fuel which is ignited to heat the water in the
surrounding container.
After the water boils and the fire is extinguished, the smoke-stack can be removed and a teapot
placed on top to be heated by the rising hot air.

The teapot is used to brew a strong concentrate of tea known as zavarka.
The tea is served by diluting this concentrate with boiled water from the main container, usually at a
water-to-tea ratio of 10-to-1, although tastes vary
