Ivan Savelevich Britzin (Britsin), born in Russia, 1870. He worked as a St Petersburg goldsmith, specialising in guilloché enamelling. In 1903 he set up his own workshop in Spasski Ulitsa, winning a gold medal for enamelling in an international exhibition. In 1910 he set up a new workshop in St Petersburg and reportedly supplied Fabergé with objects, since some bear Fabergé marks as well as his own.
