Spectacular vintage condition. Shows mild wear commensurate with age, no dings or chips to the enamel (the light in the photograph makes one corner look pale, not in person), will come with some patina, as level of polish is a matter of taste. Has a handcrafted look to it - amazing vintage piece.
About this Piece
Enamelling is the fusing of powdered, coloured glass to metal under very high heats. There are many different enamelling techniques - Guilloché enamelling is the process of working a fine pattern into the base metal, and covering it with a very smooth, coloured enamel surface that allows the pattern underneath to show through.
