Samovar is brass. The samovar sits on four-legged square foundation. The neck thickens towards its top where the ventilation chamber resides. This chamber has small holes along its perimeter in order to supply the combustion process with oxygen from the atmosphere. The boiler begins, inside is a thick tube which constitutes the combusion chamber. Near the bottom of the boiler is a small faucet that protudes from the tank. It has three parts: small decoration at its stem, the pipe itself and a simple valve with a handle. The valve is essentially a funnel with a hole. Next is the hatch of the boiler that has two small handles protecting hands from the heat. There are two small holes on the hatch to prevent the samovar from explosion and to steam the teapot at the same time. This information was taken from the internet. The samovar has ornate design near the bottom that look like flat oval circles, the next set of the same design has the brass fixture for the handles, the middle of which are ivory. The top of the samovar has small brass beads around the nect. Inside is the steel chimney,shaped like a bottle.
