Silver Tea Urns (or Samovars) have been popular items since the 1770’s, when they replaced the tea kettle which had been in use since the early 1700’s. The purpose of the tea urn was to keep water hot so that the water in the teapot could be replenished, achieved either by the use of a spirit burner under the tea urn, or by using a heated iron bar placed inside a specially created chamber within the tea urn itself. Silver tea urns remain as popular today as they have always been, with Neoclassical and Regency examples highly sought after.
