The first thing we noticed was the painting shown below.
This painting is titled, The Homemaker Serving Tea. It shows the place of samovars in the culture. The painting is the work of Stanislav V. Shlyakhtin.
Next we viewed the painting, Samovar and Vessels.
Next we saw a variety of small samovars.
But what happened next was equally surprising. Did you know samovars were once made in Warsaw, Poland?
Next we walked to the gift shop. It was fun to see a bit of Poland.
This was a great afternoon at the museum.
