Victorian Guilloche Perfume Miniature
Circa 1900. This wonderful Victorian sterling silver perfume miniature is in lovely condition and a prime example of the guilloche enamel technique popular at the end of the 18th Century. To create this effect, the engraved base metal is covered with powdered enamel, which melts in high heat and allows the intricate pattern to shine through. Faberge was famous for using this technique with his popular Easter eggs. The maker's mark on the back of the piece refers to the Webster Silver Company founded in North Attleboro, Massachusetts in 1869.
