Sunflowers in samovar

The silver container’s name is a Samovar, whit is “a heated container traditionally used to heat and boil water in and around Russia, as well as in other Slavic nations. Since the heated water is usually used for making tea, many samovars have an attachment on top of its lid to hold and heat a teapot filled with tea concentrate.”
