****INTERESTING FACTS YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT SAMOVAR****
The first samovar-makers were the Lisitsyn brothers, Russians, Ivan Fyodorovich and Nazar Fyodorovich who are historically recorded. From their childhood, they were engaged in metalworking at the brass factory of their father, Fyodor Ivanovich Lisitsyn. In 1778 they made a samovar, and the same year Nazar Lisitsyn registered the first samovar-making factory in Russia. Although they are not the inventors of the samovar, they were the first documented samovar-makers. Moreover, their various and beautiful samovar designs became very influential throughout the later history of samovar-making. These and other early producers lived in Tula a city known for its metalworkers and arms-makers. Since the 18th century, Tula has been also the main centre of Russian samovar production, with bulky samovar being the brand mark of the city.
