Meticulously hand carved Indo Persian Samovar. Made of silvered 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.
