    Soviet Space exploration Podstakanniki, "Cosmos"-themed, attractively designed and sturdy chromed metal tea glass holders, a Set of Two with glass inserts, circa 1960s.

    Matched "outer space" pair of holders with inserts with Sputnik inspired artwork on the front panels [rockets circle an Earth that is dominated by the Kremlin's Spasskaya Tower]. Manufacturer marked and price stamped (3 rubles 50 kopecks each) on both bases. The glass inserts are also Soviet-made, although they do not have a maker's logo. The holders are made of Melchior, a "nickel silver" alloy traditionally used in Russia for the most expensive art castings. (Melchior is primarily an alloy of nickel and copper, but its appearance is so convincingly silver that it is usually described as "nickel silver".)

    Excellent condition. The podstakanniki look almost new, with nice gloss the metal, no visible dents or scratches. The glass inserts have no fractures or chips; the upper edges are perfectly smooth. We offer these strictly as historic artifacts (and dramatic stage props for your dining room or study). We provide no warranty of their suitability for actually drinking hot beverages like tea or coffee. We only know that they would look great next to your grandmother's samovar or just sitting in the sunlight on a bright kitchen window ledge!
