Johan Victor Aarne (1863-1934) was a Russian gold- and silversmith of Finnish descent. From 1880 to 1904, with a short interval, Aarne worked for Fabergé, first under August Holmström, then as the head of his own workshop. He mainly specialised in small gold and enamel objects of the highest quality.
