This is the antigue shop window. On the picture you can see the old device for boiling water - samovar.

A very nice photograph with your post today. It looks like it must be some kind of tea kettle.

Easter greetings from Abraham Lincoln in Brookville, Ohio.

Nice! I remember seeing a samovar in The Bobbe's house. My former mother-in-law's mother moved to Israel from Odessa in 1896 at age 8. How does a samovar work? Do you burn something in the bottom part to make heat?

Nataly said...

yes, you are right.
you can find more info about samovar here http://samovar.holm.ru/istr01_e.htm

Spasiba Nataly. I will study your link to samovars.

How interesting. I was surprised to find (from your link) that in modern times there are ELECTRIC samovars. That almost sounds like an oxymoron.

Why not? Electric samovars just look like old fashion design kettle and it easy use every day :)
