Small samovars have been actively used since the second half of the 18th century, up to the beginning of the 20th century.An egoist samovar is a small samovar designed to heat a small volume of water, literally 1-2 glasses. The advantages of such water heaters: The price of a small samovar - it was much lower, since less copper, tin, brass were used; High boiling rate - the egoist boils in 10-15 minutes, in contrast to the prolonged heating of heavy large water heaters; Fuel economy - you will be surprised, but earlier samovars were fired with charcoal, but it was not cheap. Thrifty people liked to make tea for themselves with just a handful of cones or a couple of coals; They take up little space - egoists have replaced road, coach, marching self-heating, which had a collapsible design. The egoist could, if desired, be carried even in the pocket of a jacket or jacket, he perfectly fit into a bag; Light weight is an important criterion for those who have traveled. Today, the price of a small samovar usually remains high, as is often the case, for several reasons: Egoists were actively used in the middle of the 19th century, so such samovars can be considered a unique exhibit if the period is confirmed; Great rarity of styles; Fine work - egoists made of the finest copper, later - brass, not every master could perform such an assembly; Egoists look smart, make the collection diverse and interesting; Relatively few samovars have survived, because later, despite the price of small samovars, they were replaced by their larger brothers.
Simply put, they have ceased to be used as unnecessary. At the same time, for a collector, the presence in the collection of even a small collection of samovars of kids is already a great reason to be proud. Please make sure your address is correct.
