 Indo Persian Carved Silver Samovar Snake Handle

Meticulously hand carved Indo Persian Samovar. Made of silver coin metal alloy. This particular samovar has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring flowers and leaves with a serpent handle, and fancy ornamental openwork at the base. There is a central chamber for hot coals, and a separate secondary lid which covers it. It is in very good condition. This appears to be unused and the interior silvering is clean and intact. Measuring 11 " tall, 5" in diameter, and 9" from handle to spout, and weighing a little over 2.25 pounds before packing. This is estimated to be made in Central Asia 40 to 60 years ago.
