Anna Ringe was first recognized as a Fabergé workmaster with the exhibition "Faberge imperial
craftsman and his world", Wilmington, 2000. However, Geza von Habsburg thought that she,
along with Nykänen, Soloviev, Reimer, Thieleman and others belonged to "the lesser Faberge
work masters". Unfortunately, it seems to be the only little interest that von Habsburg had in
Anna ringes work.
Anna Ringe was married to Theodor Ringe, who initially was the proprietor of the workshop
which she later took over at her husband's death. She ran the workshop under her own name
and with her own "widow´s mark" until around 1908-10 when she sold the workshop. During this time, she works also as a workmaster
for Carl Fabergé. Ringes workshop was situated on small Morskaja 12, just a few steps from the
House of Fabergé.
