Large samovar from Afghanistan

The samovar came out of a “chaikhana”and brought to Canada about 35 years ago.

Asking $350.00

Information: Mail me

chaikhana (chai = tea; khana = house) or teahouses are found everywhere in Afghanistan. Most foreigners here use the term chaikhana though the Afghans themselves refer to the teahouse as the samovar.
Each town bazaar, no matter how small it may be, has a teahouse with a samovar boiling, ready to serve a hot cup of tea at a moment’s notice.
