There is relatively little known about the goldsmith & enameler Egor (Grigory) Pankratiev (Егор [Григорий] Григорьевич Панкратьев); works with his marks indicate that he produced objects with guilloché, champlevé, & cloisonné enamel. His mark appears together with that of Fabergé as well as the Grachev Brothers, indicating that both firms retailed pieces from his workshop. Examples of his work in guilloché enamel are held in the Fabergé Museum in St. Petersburg.
