Henrik Immanuel Wigström (1862-1923) was Fabergé’s head workmaster between 1903 and 1917, having joined the firm at the age of 22 in 1884 as an assistant to Michael Perchin. His workshop was responsible for most of the firm’s later Easter eggs, as well as a large quantity of superbly crafted enamel, gold and silver objects of art and small jewels.
