Konstantin Krijitski
Krijitski painted miniatures for the Caucasus Egg and the Danish Palace egg.


PerkhinMichael Perkhin (1860-1903)
Perkhin is the most famous of Faberge's workmaster. He was responsible for the crafting of the imperial Easter eggs from 1885 or 1886 until his death in 1903. His
hallmark appears on all but the first egg made during those years. Although he was initially trained by rural craftsmen, Perkhin's mature work recalls elements of the rococo and Louis XV styles.


Prakhov
Prakhov painted the icon of the Resurrection of christ for the Red Cross Egg with Resurrection Triptych.


Wilhelm Reimer (d.circa 1898)
Reimer made small enamel and gold objects.


WigstromHenrik Wigsrtrom (1862-1923)
Wigstrom became head workmaster upon Michael Perkhin's death in 1903, thereby assuming responsibility for the imperial Easter eggs. Wigstrom was particularly adept at designing cigarette boxes, frames and figurines, which were produced in large number during the firm's most productive years. Wigstrom's style is characterized by echoes of the Louis XVI and Empire periods.


Johannes Zehngraf (1857-1908)
Zehngraf was the chief miniature painter for Faberge and decorated the Lilies of the Valley Egg.


Vassily Zuiev (active 1908-1917)
Zuiev possibly succeeded Zehngraf as chief miniature painter and painted on enamels as well as ivory. An important example of his work is the Fifteenth Anniversary Egg.
