3. Types of Samovars
Samovars are made in different body shapes:
Size just like the shape varies largely, from the biggest ones of "40-pail" or 400 litres ones (100 US gallons) to 1 litre (1 US quart), and could be made from:
plain iron with no embelishments
polished brass with or without embelishments
silver and gilt.
The metal samovars are known to have been produced first in Tula, in the 18th century.
