Samovar jug

The Fund of the State Historical and Cultural Reserve-Museum “Azret Sultan” keeps several types of jugs, characteristic of the XVIII-XX centuries. Most of them are made of copper, brass, cast iron, metals and ceramics. Along with these jugs, the museum’s funds contain five copies of the Samovar Jug, which combines the functions of a jug and a samovar. One of them is a copper samovar jug, characteristic of the 19th century. Size of the catfish jug: 44 x 40.5 cm, pear-shaped, with a depression on the sides of the stand. In order to get into the firebox, the firebox tube resembled a raised pipe, a lid was inserted and put on the tube.

The samovar jug ​​is the work of masters who combined samples of a samovar and a jug so that it would be convenient to carry them with you if they follow the passage of time, imitating samovars that spread among the Kazakhs in the 18th-19th centuries. It was intended for brewing tea, sometimes food was prepared during the trip. Although at first glance it looked like a jug, it was actually a samovar jug ​​with a burner inside.

The Kazakh people paid great attention to the comprehensive and effective use of each subject. Our ancestors were hospitable people, and perhaps they brewed a lot of tea with this samovar jug. This unusual dish was accepted into the museum in 2003 by a resident of Kentau.
