This wonderful old copper teapot samovar was made by Sternauware of New York sometime during the the late 1800s or early 1900s. There is a patent date of January 12, 1892 on the sternau holder.

The teapot has a galvanized tin interior. The handle and lid finial are made of a black composite material I haven't identified. The sternau holder is missing the cover and lever that moves it back and forth. I cleaned it mainly because it was quite blackened and I wanted to see if it was pitted or permanently rusted. You can see the surface is in very good condition considering its age. There are marks but the gorgeous burnished copper of that era is just spectacular.

The stand is wobbly and can't be tightened because it is riveted rather that screwed together. They made them to last in those days.

Measurements are as follows: Total height-11 1/2"(29.2cm), Base height-4"(10.3cm), Base bottom diameter-6 1/2"(16.5cm), Teapot-7 1/2" (19.1cm) to upright handle, 5"(12.7cm) wide to tip of spout.

It will be sent via USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation in the US and first class to Canada.
