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.
