Super Samovar of oriental inspiration, designed and made in brass and copper by Sporry Robert , industrialist, who had created the Company of the same name installed on Marseille and also the Company « La Mauresque » in Morroco, then French Colony. The design of its samovars is simple and elegant and all their components are in perfect harmony. The support holds the tea-pot, a stove heats the water and keeps the tea warm. When the water starts boiling, the steam whistle warns the guests. Samovars from Orient or Russia arrived in France with the "White Russians" loyalists to the Tsar during the 1917 Revolution. Their design was overloaded. They were difficult to use and maintain, very expensive, and reserved for rich people. Robert SPORRY democratized the Samovar, simplified it and made it accessible to all. Spares parts were numbered for an easyer maintenance. He manufactured the Samovars in series for the French and Maghreb markets during the period 1920/1950 because the tea became a great consumer product in France. Very beautiful object for the decoration of a kitchen whatever the style. Dimensions in inches: H: 14 x W: 10 (36 cm x 25 cm). Capacity of the teapot: 1 liter approximately.
