Russian Samovar ~ A samovar is a heated metal container traditionally used to heat and boil water in and around Russia. Since the heated water is typically used to make tea, many samovars have a ring-shaped attachment around the chimney to hold and heat a teapot filled with tea concentrate. Antique samovars are often displayed for their beautiful workmanship. #Moscow #Samovar
