Antique 20th Century Imperial Russian Faberge jewelled two-color gold and enamel cigarette case, with alternating horizontal engine-turned panels and white opaque enamel stripes, the cigarette case's hinged cover with a diamond-set thumb-piece.

Hallmarked Russian gold 56 (583 standard), St-Petersburg, year 1908-1917, Maker's mark H.W (Henrik Wigstrom, renowned Faberge work-master, active 1903-1917), 'Faberge' retail mark.

Wigstrom inherited the Perkhin workshop after his death, and became the third and last senior workmaster responsible for most of the Tsar Imperial Easter eggs for the years 1904-1917.

In the McFerrin Collection the Wigström workshop is represented by a two-sided Louis XVI Fire-Screen Frame with photographs of Tsar Nicholas and the Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna of a later vintage. Different colored golds depict the floral motives. The various colors are made through the addition of copper, silver, zinc, iron, etc., to form an alloy, for example, green gold is 75 parts of pure gold to 25 parts of silver. Further details on the alloys used by Fabergé can be viewed from Lowes & McCanless, Fabergé Eggs: A Retrospective Encyclopedia (2001), 275. (Winter 09-10)
