1860's-georgian-quadruple Plate-samovar-hot Water Pot Urn-tea Pot:
Here is an original1860'sGeorgian silver plate SAMAVAR.The original separate piece that holds the kerosene to keep the water or tea hot isincluded and with the SAMAVAR. The unused wick is still in place and can be seen in the photos.The underside of this kerosene holder shows where it has been repaired long before it came down to the last two generations. This SAMAVARis very decorative with shells and swirls. The four feet look like hoofs and above the feet are heads of men with a shell above the head. I have used this piece on many occasions in the past years. I set a small dish under the spicket to catch any drip. This Samovar has been in a clean dry storage for the last twenty years. The silver plate is worn on some of the areas, especially on the handles. The lid fits nicely onto the top of theSAMAVAR. Thispiece has been inthe family since it was new.This is alovely and beautiful old silver plate SAMOVARwithmuch character added over the years.It could be resilvered or it can be usedin it's present condition. It stands about 18 inches tall. Seephotos.
