Peter Carl Fabergé was the world’s greatest master of guilloché enameling a time-intensive technique in which polychrome enamel is layered over circular straight or wave patterns engraved on metal. Combining exquisite guilloché enameling with precious metals and stones Fabergé brought it to the very heights of luxury making it one of the decorative techniques most favored by the elite of Edwardian society. Our frame is based on a gold-mounted silver frame with translucent blue enamel over a guilloché sunray ground with gold swags and gold ribbon cresting created in Fabergé’s studios before 1899. Features hand-enameling and gold overlay. In 1870 a 24 year old Peter Carl Fabergé Russian 1846–1920 took over his father’s jewelry business in St. Petersburg Russia.
