It appears to be unique in the Fabergé genre that the same mark wm-ah was used by two generations of qualified workmasters, and needs to be considered in dating a piece. Examples of their work are the 1892 Diamond Trellis Egg (2011 McFerrin Collection), and the 1896 Lilies of the Valley Basket (Matilda Geddings Gray Collection) and under Albert's leadership, the 1913 Winter Egg (private collection) and 1914 Mosaic Egg (British Royal Collection).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. Two more tiaras exist with a flower theme from this same workshop, after 1903 owned by August's son Albert.
