Wordley Allsopp & Bliss Green Guilloché Enamel Cuff Links

$350

Made by Wordley, Allsopp & Bliss, these Edwardian era enamel and sterling silver cuff links date from the 1910s. Each slim oval sterling silver link centers a field of green guilloché enamel, or enamel emplaced over an “engine-turned” engraved field, within a low relief lozenge and dot silver surround. With their rich green luster and delicate patterning, these links add a touch of glowing color to the cuff, suitable both for the office or festive occasion.

Guilloché enamels were highly popular at the turn of the 19th century, when Fabergé in Russia and Cartier in Paris led a revival and reinterpretation of the jewelry and goldsmith’s arts of late the 18th century. Guilloché enamel was created by applying a sophisticated and costly “rose engine lathe” to create precision geometric patterning on precious metal surfaces, an arcane art that had been practiced by royalty and aristocrats in the 18th century in Paris and London.
