THE GUILLOCHÉ ENAMELLING PROCESS It is a common mis-perception that the term guilloché refers to a TYPE of enamelling when the term actually refers to a PROCESS. Guilloché, phonetically pronounced gee-oh-SHAY, is from the French word meaning "engine turning". It simply means "engine turning patterns" and refers to an ornamental pattern. Guilloché patterns can be seen in neoclassic architecture and banknotes ( in an effort to deter forgery). The technique as it pertains to jewelry making involves carving a design into a base metal. Guilloché is a decorative engraving technique in which a very precise intricate repetitive pattern or design is mechanically engraved into an underlying material with fine detail. Specifically, it involves a technique of engine turning, called guilloché in French after the French engineer “Guillot”, who invented a machine. The technique was made famous by the Russian Jewelry Artist Peter Carl Fabergé in the 1900s. Evans: United States. Established as the D. Evans Case Co. in North Attleboro, Mass. in the early 1920s. Manufacturing compacts as early as the 1920s. Famous for their mesh bottomed compacts and their guilloche enamel. At some point in time, they became a division of Hilsingor Corp. of Plainville, Mass. Disappeared after 1965. ENJOY!!! IF SHIPPING COSTS SEEM TO BE TOO HIGH, IT MIGHT BE A GLITCH. SO PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE REAL AMOUNT.
