Tea devices for connoisseurs of antiques

The 18th century played a huge role in the development of antiques, because it was during this period that the first samples of tea-ware, as well as dining, were created. This happened because tea was brought from China in the 17th century. Soon there was a need to create tea utensils. This is how antique lovers were able to get items of the most amazing forms created from various materials. Gradually began to appear factories that specialized in the production of various tea utensils. Some objects from the past keep secrets, are witnesses of important historical events. In addition, tea sets from the past are real works of art.

In the mid-19th century, a cup holder appeared for the first time, which became an integral part of tea drinking. For example, in Russia they began to use a glass in a cup holder, but in the East, slightly different customs. There, tea is a ceremony to which a philosophical approach is applied. The main goal of such events is to allow a person to relax a bit from everyday activities, to relax his body. In Russia, the traditions of tea reception are completely different, for example, people meet at the same table, drink tea, discuss sensitive topics.

When the coasters appeared, they had completely simple forms. But time passed, the ways of their design, processing changed. Silver cup holders have always been a testament to wealth, wealth in the family. Until the 19th century, silver was present only among aristocrats.

The artistic transformation of the coasters was also influenced by the market situation in the 20th century. It was during this period that an active upsurge in the development of art began. I acquired my own traits and the Russian style, because these years national schools are opening, objects from gold and silver are beginning to be actively created. So there were various cult objects that until today are of interest to collectors of antiques. It was in the 20th century that jewelers Pavel Ovchinnikov, I. Khlebnikov, F. Lorne and others who left a rich artistic heritage became famous. The jewelry works of these masters impress with their perfection.

In addition, art schools were created in the 19-20 centuries, where their styles and features are developed. Karl Faberge establishes a jewelry company. Faberge factory located in Moscow continues to work actively. Coasters were created here in the style of Rococo, Empire, classicism.

Coasters, created in the period of the 19th and 20th centuries, perfectly characterize the basic styles of this period, the applied performance techniques. Jewelry that is of value to collectors is always branded. It is from this characteristic line that you can find out the time of creation of a particular product.

Antiques collectors also pay attention to the technique of decorating tea appliances. Typically, silver objects used engraving, stamping, chasing and other methods. The relief decor, which was created by casting, was also actively used.
