Creator: Simon Richmond | Travel - 2010-09-15

'To take one's own samovar to Tula', a well-known Russian idiom coined by Anton Chekov, is similar to the Western saying, 'carrying coals to Newcastle'. Production was started in the late 18th century by a local gunsmith, Fedor Lisitsyn .

Russian Folk Art

Creator: Alison Hilton | Art - 1995-01-01

Tula was among the most important centers of metalwork, with its armaments industry and its extraordinary furniture of iron and cut steel. Tula also became the most important center of samovar production. The samovar (literally "self-boiler"),  ...

About this book
Russian Folk Art describes the traditions, styles, and functions of a broad range of objects made by Russian peasant artists and artisans. Beginning with the settings in which folk artists traditionally workedÑthe peasant household, the village, and the local marketÑAlison Hilton describes the principal media they employed (wood, textiles, birch bark and bone, metal, and ceramics) and the items they produced: kitchen utensils such as bowls, goblets, dippers, and molds; tools used in making clothing; lace, embroidered linens, costumes, and everyday clothing; toys; elaborate window frames and house decorations; and colorful broadsides called lubki. The book emphasizes the cumulative originality of Russian folk art, the balance between time-honored forms and techniques, and the creativity of individual artists. It shows how images and designs evolved from ancient Slavic sources, absorbed elements of church, court, and urban arts, reflected historical events and daily life, and helped to form a Russian esthetic identity in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Finally, it examines the complex interaction between folk art and high culture: the role of serf artists, the preservation and reinterpretation of folk art by scholars and professional artists, and the new roles of folk art in the Soviet era. Abundantly illustrated with examples from Russian museums, Russian Folk Art is a treasure for anyone interested in Russian culture.

    They had me return it to them (free shipping both ways which was nice for me)

    4/5 Laura Reinschmidt - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vintage Russian Samovar 1988 TULA hmm...my original review was 5 stars...after one year of use the proprietary heating element froze up and either boiled the water or had to be turned off...the medium and low settings no longer worked. With no luck trying to get it repaired locally (this is when we found out the internal workings were proprietary) I contacted the seller about the problem. They had me return it to them (free shipping both ways which was nice for me). They repaired it promptly and sent it back, letting me know to turn samovar down to low after water gets hot (I had been keeping it on medium because on low water didn't stay hot enough...it now works fine...and water stays hot on low. One caveat, which seller tells me is a UPS issue, not theirs, is that when samovar was returned, one of the side handles was broken off.

    A really first-rate Samovar!

    We drink tea all day and I have long wanted an electric samovar. I looked at everyone on Amazon and read EVERY review over and over. There are always positive reviews and always negative reviews, so, I went with the samovar that looked the most authentically Russian, hoping that I would not be disappointed. Let me tell you, this baby is gorgeous and works perfectly. It is easy to set up and easy to use; boils to a rolling boil in just a few minutes and then has an adjustment to keep the water boiling all day. I was most concerned that the water would boil away too quickly and that I would need to keep filling the water chamber -- definitely not a problem. I have started it in the early morning and run it until late in the evening and have, NOT ONCE, had to add water to the boiling chamber. The description says that it does not come with a built-in tea infuser (though the photo on Amazon shows it with one). I figured I could live with that as I prefer to use the large paper tea... 5/5 Justin Grose - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Picture looks better than in real life

    4/5 sneshka - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vintage Russian Samovar 1988 TULA Received the samovar without certificate of warranty which according to the enclosed manual should be filled out and submitted after purchase. Also wanted to add, the small kettle which goes on top of the samovar has a black plastic handle with Chineese name on it which clashes with white handles of the samovar.. Picture looks better than in real life :( I really love samovars and had used mine for 9 years before i replaced it with this one.. I don't this the product is made in Germany as advertised Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 16, 2015
