Description

The Museums watch is based on a round table clock made of gold, pearls, and guilloch enamel that was created in the workshop of Peter Carl Faberg (Russian, 1846 1920) sometime between 1896 and 1908. Faberg was the worlds greatest master of guilloch enameling, a time-intensive technique, in which polychrome enamel is layered over circular, straight, or wave patterns engraved on metal. Combining this type of enameling with precious metals and stones, Faberg brought guilloch to the very heights of luxury, making it one of the decorative techniques most favored by the elite of Edwardian society.

Made expressly for the Metropolitan Museum in the United States.
