Default What is this??

I bought this several years ago at a little antique store. It was so tarnished almost all green and black.

I keep polishing it and I really like the piece, but I'm not sure what it is. I know it holds some kind of beverage(tea or coffee?) it has a spigot and two small tea pot looking containers. It would be nice to know what I've been polishing all these years! LOL

I think 'back in the day' these urns were used for either coffee or tea, but not positive. You have my curosity peaked... going to see if I can find how to use one LOL.

In quick search on 'how to use"...look what came up..

Deb, I think it is a samovar---used for tea. It looks like a Turkish/or Russian one, but I am not an expert. It is lovely.

Edit: try looking at these:

Thanks Sandi, yes that's pretty much what mine looks like. I think I paid about150.00 for it 20 years ago. I won't sell it, I've invested way too much cleaning in it! LOL It's just nice to know what it is.

Hopefully someone in my family will end up loving my antiques. I tried to give my daughter some of my silver and she said.."No way, I don't want to clean it!" Maybe Rosslyn will???

Yes, it definitely skips a generation! I have lots of antiques in the US & my girls are sort of the same way, except for the stuff from the Black Forest---mainly furniture.
I, too, have lots of silver stuff which always needs to be cleaned & polished---they won't want that for sure.
I do have a Steiff teddy bear collection--mostly limited editions, even a Richard Steiff bear along w/some old German bears. I love teddies!

That is so funny. I do get tired of hand washing the silverware. I started putting the everyday silver in the dishwasher and it got all tarnished and icky. Then I started using the stainless more. One night, after I went to bed, DH polished all the silver and HID the stainless.
