The tap is fitted with a painted carved wood fan shaped spigot/handle.

The samovar is fitted with a pair of exceptional chased decorated handles realistically modelled in the form of looped branches.

This impressive Georgian samovar retains the original hallmarked domed push fit cover encompased with further scaled chased floral and fluted ornamenation.

The cover is surmounted with an exceptional and original sterling silver floral and foliate finial.

The body of the samovar secures to the pedestal with a bayonet fitment to the rim and detaches to allow access to the cylindrical coal chamber.

This pierced decorated grille/compartment secures with a bolt fitting to the centre of the hallmarked pedestal.

The pedestal and square base are each encompassed with further applied gadroon decorated borders in addition to a continuation of fluted and floral ornamentation.

The sides of the base are ornamented with panels of pierced quatrefoil motifs.
