A conical urn-shaped silver-plated samovar

Etymology

From Russian (samovár, "self-boiler"); from (samó, "self") + ? (varít?, "boil, cook")

Noun

samovar (plural samovars)

  1. A metal urn with a spigot, for boiling water for making tea. Traditionally, the water is heated by hot coals or charcoal in a chimney-like tube which runs through the center of the urn. Today, it is more likely that the water is heated by an electric coil.
    • 1919, Ronald Firbank, Valmouth, Duckworth, hardback edition, page 107
      Come on now with the samovar - and make haste sorting the letter-bag.
    • 1932, Maurice Baring, chapter 20, in Friday's Business[1]:
      Eurydice pointed to the cupboard, and sat down on the low divan with folded hands, and looked at the floor. [...] Elsa made her drink a glass of vodka. Then she fetched the samovar from the kitchen, and made tea.
