Antique guilloché enamel and pearl pendant with a locket on the back

Made in the early 1900’s, this antique pendant doubles as a locket.

A brief history on guilloché enamel:
Going back to the 18th Century, guilloché is a decorative technique in which a very precise and repetitive pattern is engraved into an underlying material such as gold or silver and then the enamel applied over the top. After the firing process is completed, it is polished back to a high lustre revealing the engraved pattern below the surface. This technique can be seen on jewellery as well as decorative pieces such as pill boxes, opera glasses and of course carriage clocks such as this one here. Often seen in high quality French and Swiss pieces over the century, this is an enamelling technique that has always remained so popular and sought after.
