Michael Perchin (1860-1903) Faberge picture frame with diamonds, back of frame marked with the Faberge mark "MN" "88", 3.5"x5.5"T. Perchin, Michael (Michael Evlampievitch Perchin) (1860-1903) is the most famous of Faberge's work masters. 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, Perchin's mature work recalls elements of the rococo and Louis XV styles. The metal standard in zolotniks: for silver 84 and 88 (or 875/1000 and 916/1000 parts of silver, making 88 slightly below sterling in silver content).
