    THIS WAS A GREAT FIND! I have no idea if its a rare item or not! but its a cool 1 for sure-the tray and 2 cups that match look great-I even got lucky and found the cord to it! that looks a bit scary to plug in-if you ask me! but all the parts are there for the inside plus the top is glass-so im hopeing someone might know a bit more about this thing-If anybody does please tell! I would love to hear anything about it! thank you!

      You got yourself a samovar! it literally means "self boiler" and it is a Russian electric coffee maker. It is probably from the 1960's looking at the "scary" cord and handles. The 2 cups are actually a creamer and a sugar bowl with cover. It has a replacement lid as the original would have been metal as well with a wooden (or whatever the handles are made of) knob. These sell between $15.00USD to up words of $1500.00USD, depending on condition and age and other stuff.
      Here are a couple sites for you to look at if you like:

      HELLO'-thanks so much for the info!! but i went and pulled it out and looked around it-and on the bottom it says;JOS.HEINRICHS then under that it says;PARIS+NEW YORK then in big letters; PURE COPPER 20 -then under the 20-it says PAT.APR.23.1907 110V. 500W. ! thats it--is that a russin 1? who is JOS.HEINRICHS--is he a inventer or something-should i try to goggle him or still look on the sites you sent me?-I never looked under the thing-the little cups on the side are from a differant people-it says; landers frary&clark new britain conn.u.s.a on the bottom--it also says in big letters UNIVERSAL--before all the names! so when you get a min'-if you happen to know if this the same as what you were talking about or something totally differant?I know about some stuff-but this is way out of my zone-but its old and cool looking!! thats for sure! does the pat'date mean it was made in that year?because that would be cool-this thing is over a 100 years old!thats nuts! Im not pluging it in!! o-no no no!! holding onto pure copper-you would deff"-have a bad hair day for sure!!lol:):) thanks again-and if you know anything thig on this name on the bottom love to hear it! thanks and have a great weekend! c-dogg(its the name of my best friend/black lab-he is a 1 of a kind for sure!)

      hello mother duck-I went to the 1st link and check them out! thay are really fancy! makes this 1 look boring! no color etc'-but I think this is something differant! those were super nice! the search goes on--thanks again-

      wow! MY bad! I judged a bit too apologies c-dogg! however I never thought that you would have stumbled on such a fine and RARE piece! No this one is not Russian...this one was made in the USA.
      so here it goes...
      Joseph Heinrichs was was a premiere copper and silversmith, furnishing the very best hotels with his restaurant ware line and his decorative arts to Tiffany's. Heinrichs started in 1897 in New York and later expanded to Paris so this is a later piece since his early pieces do not have the word "Paris" on them. Also it is electric, so I would say mid 1930's. It was also around this time that he started to produce items for homeowners. These were not as elaborate as the restaurant ware but were affordable. The company went bankrupt in 1937. He was an icon of the Arts and Crafts movement where beauty and function meet. The handles were usually made of EBONY wood and the original COPPER lid would have a finial of the same. I guess the tray is not marked?
      I should have realized that it was Art Deco, but it is hard to judge from photos. As for the other pieces, I don't really know much. They might be a part of a set that came with the tray since Heinrichs trays were mostly circular.
      All original RESTAURANT WARE pieces can sell for thousands since they are mostly lined with pure sterling silver and are rather elaborate. These coffee urns, if all original can go for hundreds.
      and I do not suggest that you plug it in before you have an electrician look at it...LOL!
      hope this helps a bit...have a good weekend as well...

THE TRAY IS MADE BY THE SAME GUY!! is that a good thing? it says his name-then under it it says PARIS + NEW YORK! I hope that will add to the value of it! and I thik your right about the 2 cup things-thay were added on later // well thanks so much for all that info!! so now whats the best way to sell it-thats my next mission!

      you are very welcome...
      and that is great news about the tray...mostly they were circular so this is probably rare as well and definitely will add to the value!
      I was able to find out a bit about the sugar and creamer...the company was bought out by General Electric and did manufacture under the name Universal, so it seems that they are worth a penny or two...LOL!
      as for selling could try eBay if you are willing to sell cheap...the best thing to do is to take it to an antique dealer in town and have them look at it and perhaps they will sell it for you...also take that awesome Elk walking stick...just love it...all hand made and polished with what looks like real gold hand tooled cigar band embellishment...WOW! (sorry a bit off the topic here...LOL!)
      well anyway good luck!
      and don't worry about the spelling and get some rest!

      I am very sorry to hear about ur best friend and I hope he will get better...
      most dealers do not like o talk on the phone but want to see the item...they are a bit odd lot!
      the only thing I can think of is eBay...
