Ivan Ivanovich Murinov was a glass painter. He started work at the Imperial Glassworks in 1855; in 1872 he became master in the 'painting workshop'. From 1894-1901 he was in charge of artistic development of the Imperial China and Glass Works and in his last years there he oversaw the department's productions in the Art Nouveau style. Gallé's work was much admired as is evident in this vase which, although dated 1904, may have been designed earlier. Decorated with waterweeds and snails, in Japanese taste but also with overtones of symbolism, this vase demonstrates an awareness in Russia of developments in French glass at the same date.

public_access_description
This Russian vase shows an awareness of developments in French glass in the early 20th century. It is dated 1904 but may have been designed earlier. The designer, Ivan Ivanovich Murinov, was a glass painter who became artistic director at the Imperial China and Glass Works in St Petersburg from 1894-1901. During his last years there he supervised the production of pieces in the Art Nouveau style. Murinov much admired the work of the French glassmaker Emile Gallé, which influenced the decoration of this vase. Waterweeds and snails were popular in Japanese art. Here, as in Gallé's work, these natural forms have been used as symbols of mystical ideas.
