workmaster mark AH –
His workshop created the Fabergé copies of the Imperial regalia in a one- to ten-scale miniatures. The history of the tiara in the McFerrin Collection has an interesting historical connection dating back to ca. 1810 and involves the Holmström workshop ca. 1890. Two more tiaras exist with a flower theme from this same workshop, after 1903 owned by August’s son Albert.
August Wilhelm Holmström (Swedish August Wilhelm Holmström, 1829, Helsingfors, Grand Duchy of Finland - 1903, Russian Empire) is a Finnish jeweler, a master of the firm of Carl Faberge in St. Petersburg.
He studied at the Petersburg jeweler Herold, in 1850 became an apprentice. In 1857 he became a master and founded his own workshop. In the same year he took over the management of Gustav Faberge's workshop in St. Petersburg. Along with the well-known Faberge eggs, Holmström created a number of high-quality, exclusive and valuable ornaments that are currently stored in the Hermitage.
