A similar apparatus
Would be interesting to know how they exchanged this strikingly similar samovar design. I mean this was at the frontier of British India vs. Russian Empire.
It wasn't until the 1980ies that Pakistan had links to China via the Karakoram Highway. Maybe that way?
Samovars are said to have been invented in Central Asia, though their origin is a matter of dispute. For example, some argue that it is purely a Russian invention given that the samovar appeared in Iran not later than in 18th century, and it bears the same Russian name "samovar".
Voted! This is one of the many in this series that I really love! Beth

I am seeing you have very very beautiful pictures from Karakorum and Pakistan. Especially those that portray life and people. I must return to your gallery to contemplate it quietly with the time it deserves.
In mine I loaded some old pictures that I made there in 1992. Perhaps you might find them interesting.

Simple. Russian Army brought those samovars to Afghanistan, and then they've made their way to P. via Khyber Pass. ;-)
