Himowich family Samovar
This samovar is my the New York city lhome of my paternal grandparents. Adolph Himowich and Rose Igelska immigrated respectively from Keiv, Russia in 1881 and Suwalki, Poland in 1884. They were married in 1891. You can see the script "H" on the collar below the Samovar top. In those days without ubiqitous coffee shops, tea was more popular than today as a caffeine delivery vehicle.
