Perfect example of Russian samovar set from Warsaw Province (like they called at Moscow Samovar gallery) or a Polish samovar set by Plewkiewicz w Warzawie. The firm Factory of silver-plated and gilded items Roman Plewkiewicz & Co. Was founded in 1886 as a branch of the famous Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (in English Württemberg Metalware Factory) or WMF.
First Plewkiewicz performed only the silvering of the base-metal items brought from Germany. Plewkiewicz started the production of fashionable silver-plated table ware with coloured glass inlets, including home-made items, which constituted 15% of total production. The home-made items, as well as pieces imported from Germany and silver-plated in Warsaw, were marked similarly.
As a result, the R. Plewkiewicz foundry experienced a quick growth particularly, due to a well-organized net of travelling salesmen. In 1900, after the retirement of Roman Plewkiewicz, the firm was transformed to joint-stock company, which survived until the beginning of World War I. The item "Rare Russian samovar 4ps.
