Model: GG22561


Authentic Russian brass tea glass holder featuring vegetation of the Soviet South, including palm trees. Literally, podstakannik (as it is known in Russian) means "under the glass" or "for the glass". Less expensive ones were used on Soviet trains during the Soviet era, while more expensive and elaborate ones have been used from time immemorial by Russian aristocracy, then by Soviet leaders, now by the new Russian capitalists. Your tea will taste Russian only when drunk from an original Russian glass holder imported from Moscow.
