The collection of the State Historical Museum — which has been introduced to academia for the first time — includes traditional coal and modern electric samovars designed and decorated with a variety of materials and manufacturing methods. Of particular value are rare artefacts of the middle of the XVIII — first half of the XIX century. The monuments of the Russian tea drinking tradition preserved by the State Historical Museum testify to the unique historical and cultural heritage associated with the development of samovar craft in Russia for almost three centuries.
