      This is a Samovar, a Russian tea urn, although was used in other countries.
      that's about all I know, but maybe if you start searching under that you will find some info.

      Otherwise someone else here is sure to know more!

      Its a samovar ; literally "self-boiler", is a heated metal container traditionally used to heat and boil water in and around Russia, as well as in other Central, South-Eastern, Eastern European countries, Kashmir and in the Middle-East. Since the heated water is typically used to make tea, many samovars have a ring-shaped attachment around the chimney to hold and heat a teapot filled with tea concentrate.Though traditionally heated with coal or charcoal, many newer samovars use electricity to heat water in a manner similar to an electric water boiler. Antique samovars are often displayed for their beautiful workmanship!Nice find!!
