As Head Workmaster to Peter Carl Fabergé from 1903 to 1918, Henrik Wigstrom captivated the art world with his brilliant creations for the House of Fabergé. Among his greatest accomplishments were the Russian Imperial Fabergé Eggs, presented by the Tsars to members of the Romanov Family.
Wigstrom’s career began in 1886, when he started working in one of Fabergé’s workshops as apprentice to Mikhail Perkhin. In 1903, he succeeded Perkhin as Head Workmaster to Fabergé, creating some of the finest treasures the world has ever known.
In 1907, Henrik Wigstrom completed the Fabergé Imperial Trophy Egg, also known as the “Egg with Love Trophies” or “Cradle with Garlands Egg.”
The Trophy Egg was presented by Tsar Nicholas II to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Fedorovna on Easter, April 22, 1907, celebrating the birth of his long-awaited son and heir, the Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaievich.
The Henrik Wigstrom Trophy Collection is the first in the David Oscarson™ series of Limited Edition writing instruments. Inspired by his 1907 masterpiece, this one-of-a-kind collection stands as a tribute to the fabulous works of Henrik Wigstrom, Head Workmaster to Peter Carl Fabergé.
The Wigstrom Collection continues in the spirit of artistic mastery and the tradition of Old World craftsmanship by combining the centuries-old technique of Guilloché with the art and expertise of Hard Enamel. The Trophy Collection is also the first to incorporate two levels of Guilloché and two colors of Hard Enamel on each Collection piece. All four breathtaking colors of translucent hard enamel are accented with rich opalescent white hard enamel; each color limited to production of 128 pieces (including fountain pens and roller balls).
