Peter Carl Faberge (1846-1920) - Flowers

Henrik Emanuel Wigström (1862-1923) - Pansy (Rock crystal, nephrite, gold, enamel, rose diamond)
A drawing exists in the design books of Wigström’s workshop for a pansy flower head which was executed in April 1912, some years after this flower. Michael Perchin had earlier produced the art nouveau-style Imperial Pansy Egg of 1899, and in 1903 he designed a miniature frame in the form of a pansy flower. This has a mechanism which, when released, opens the petals to reveal miniature portraits of the five children of Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna (Moscow Kremlin Armoury Museum). Mark of Henrik Wigström; gold mark of 72 zolotniks (1896-1908); Fabergé in Cyrillic characters Text adapted from Fabergé in the Royal Collection

Feodor Afanassiev (workmaster) - Catkins (Rock crystal, two-colour gold, nephrite)
This flower was made in the workshop of Feodor Afanassiev, who specialised in producing small objets d’art such as miniature Easter eggs and picture frames. It is an interesting example of the use of different coloured golds, the matt red gold of the stems contrasting with the powdery yellow spun gold of the flowers. Mark of Feodor Afanassiev; gold mark 56 zolotniks Text adapted from Fabergé in the Royal Collection
