Sterling silver Art Deco guilloché enamel arm bangle made in the 1920’s

This Art Deco bangle was made large enough to sit higher up the arm that a traditional bangle. The guilloché enamel is still in perfect condition, and this enamelling technique was very popular during the Art Deco period of the 1920’s to the 1940’s.

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 carriage clocks. Often seen in high quality French, Swiss, Russian and English pieces over the century, this is an enamelling technique that has always remained so popular and sought after.
