COLLECTIBLE ANTIQUE SOLID BRASS TEA POT MADE IN TULA, IMPERIAL RUSSIA
The featured item represents a coffee or tea pot hand crafted from solid brass. It measures approximately 7" deep, 2 1/2" in diameter at theopening and 3" at thebottom.
The pitcher features hand made hammered design on the body, a long goose neck spout and lid with a finial. The handle is bonded to the body and the lid with hand made copper rivets. The inside of the pot is lined with that appears to be tin. The bottom of the piece is stamped with the Imperial Russia eagle and inscribed with " фвътулѣ" that translates Made In Tula.
Tula is an industrial city and the administrative center of Tula Oblast, Russia. Since 1712 Tula was the seat of an important iron and steel industry.In the middle of the XVIII century, manufacturing of samovars and coffee pots took an important place in a metalworking industry of the country.They were made in different regions but Tula became real capital of samovar manufacturing. In 1919 all samovar factories became nationalized, many of them stopped their existence completely.
The pitcher was made before 1917when the Russian Empire came to an end and the doubleEagle was no moreused as official symbol. As far as the earliest years the pot was possible made I would say not earlier then the middle 1800's as the oriental stylethat start developing about that time.
