WIKIPEDIA: Henrik Immanuel Wigstrom (1862-1923) was one of the most important Faberge workmasters along with Michael Perchin. Perchin was the head workmaster from 1886 until his death in 1903, when he was succeeded by his chief assistant Henrik Wigstrom. These two workmasters were responsible for almost all the imperial Easter eggs. Erik August Kollin, a Finn, was head work master from 1870 to 1886 and produced gold jewellery, including pieces in the Scythian style (the Scythian treasure had just been discovered at Kerch in the Crimea). August Wilhelm Holmstrom (who had been appointed head jeweller by Gustav Faberge in 1857) was born in Ekenas, Finland. Henrik Wigstrom was apprenticed to a local silversmith named Petter Madsen, a successful manufacturer of silverware who was familiar with the jewellery trade in St. Petersburg, as at one time he had had a workshop there. Once in Madsen's employment, his master's trade with Russia, as well as his numerous business contacts here, brought him to work in St. Petersburg. It is unknown who employed Wigstrom on his arrival in the capital, but Wigstrom became assistant in 1884, at the age of 22, to Perchin, whose shop at that time was already working exclusively for Faberge. Wigstrom became head workmaster at Faberge after Perchin's death in 1903. The number of craftsmen in Wigstrom's workshop diminished drastically with the outbreak of World War I. By 1918, the Revolution forced the complete closing of the House of Faberge. Aged 56, Wigstrom retreated almost empty-handed to his summer house, on Finnish territory, and died there in 1923. His art is similar to Perchin's but tends to be in the Louis XVI, Empire, or neo-classical style. Nearly all the Faberge hardstone animals, figures and flowers from that time period were produced under his supervision.
