Tea Urns, also known as samovars, were used for keeping hot water to replenish the teapot. They were not usually found before about 1765 and the early ones were heated with charcoal. About 20 years later more sophisticated designs were produced after the introduction of a pre heated iron rod which could be placed into the tea urn within a central tube. By the year 1800 the use of spirit lamps underneath the urn became popular. Smaller urns were made specially for coffee and these normally didn’t have a heating device.
