Default fancy Samovar, origin ??

Hello dear members,

I wanted to show you this samovar I just bought.

I'm like a magpie, I like every shiny, fancy item I see ,
too ''bad'' stuff

Not expensive, I know it's not silver but I like the global look of this big item
( 46cm high ) and I think it's not a too recent item and was really used as a samovar cf pictures and not just a toy... ( sadly the ''key'' is missing... )

I think it was made of brass and the silvered on parts and later
covered with this ''bad'' fake silver ciselled sheats and faux corals and turquoise for make it more attractive.

( Central big stones looks like carnelian, the rest must be fake corals and turquoise )


Just a stamp inside the brass part

Maybe iranian work or central Asia ??

Glad if you can tell me more

Kind regards

I'd go with Central Asia, and guesstimate mid-20th century.

It does have delusions of grandeur. Too bad the valve is missing - if it was mine, I might have one made to fit.

I do not think it is Central Asian, likely Russian or Iranian, the small round mark shows inverted V which could be Arabic/Persian character. It'd be hard to find matching spigot key as it'd have to match the conically shaped shaft, but certainly possible, and slightly larger one can be filed to fit too. Here are some I have laying around.

Good questions
and the answers are: I don't know where it comes from
Could be Turkish or North African
The design is Ottoman and it is low grade silver and brass.
Around 1900
