A samovar is a traditional Kashmiri kettle used to brew, boil and serve tea and kahwa. Kashmiri samovars are made of copperware with engraved or embossed calligraphic motifs.The process of making of a copper goes through many artisans who are specialized in a particular technique. The process involves Khar ? the smith, Naqash ? the engraver, Zarcod ? the gilder, Roshangar ? the polisher and Charakgar ? the cleaner or finisher. In fact, specific localities or Mohallas like Roshangar-Mohalla are named after these professions, where these artisans still carry out their craft practice. Our Copper samavar has motifs of chinar leaves all around body and tomb.
