Guilloch� (presumably named after French engineer Guillot) is a symmetrical pattern engraving technique, where a lathe is used to cut intricate patterns into the metal, known as engine turning. The powdered enamel is then layered over the metal, and after firing, the transparent enamel lets the design peek through.
Peter Carl Faberg�s workshop used this technique often when creating his exquisite pieces of jewellery and collectables.
