Such samovars-Petukhs are known no more than a dozen.Produced in the early 1870s in the style of a la RUS, they were supposed to represent Russia among other goods in 1873 at an exhibition in Vienna.This is evidenced by the inscription "In memory of the World Vienna Exhibition."It is not known who exactly developed this particular samovar, but one of the earliest samovars-Petukhs dated 1863 and signed by Hippolytus Monighetti, an architect of the imperial court.Monighetti was the author of the imperial pavilion at an exhibition in Vienna, decorated in the style of boyars in chorus and marked by the medal of the exhibition. Organized by European industrialists, including Kruppas and Rothschilds, the Vienna World Exhibition was the first such event outside the UK and France.Despite the fact that its main goal was to conclude contracts between representatives of large business, a special emphasis was on the dialogue of cultures.To do this, in one of the central parks of Vienna, an exposition was arranged dedicated to the national cultures of the participating countries. A huge collection of samovars was also represented in the pavilion of the Russian Empire.There were samovars in the form of a cup, cylinder, barrel, samovars with a built -in alcohol burner.But the center of the collection was a samovar made of gilded copper, made in the form of a rooster. According to the results of the exhibition, the samovar-pepper received a gold medal.The reward was not accidental: even in the manufacturing technology of the master, they moved away from the traditional method of pitching a dumplings of samovar from sheet metal.The rooster was made using a new technological technique - casting according to the model, and then richly decorated, including bone and glass.But, despite the complexity of the work performed, the names of the masters remained unknown.Artistic critic Vladimir Stasov pointed out the possible manufacture of a samovar in the Petersburg workshop of the bar.However, there is no confirmation of this. The artistic style in which the samovar is made is called “Petushkov” or “Ropetovsky” - by the name of architect Ivan Pavlovich Ropet, which is considered the founder of the pseudo -Russian direction in the visual arts preceding the modernity.It is based on the traditions of ancient Russian architecture and at the same time - folk decorative art.This explains the contrast: exceptional work is combined with folk proverbs written in the samovar.There are two of them: “the samovar boils, does not tell” and “where there is tea, there is a paradise under the spruce.”
