It is a common mis-perception that the term guilloché refers to a TYPE
of enameling when the term actually refers to a PROCESS.
Guilloché, phonetically pronounced gee-oh-SHAY, is from the French
word meaning "engine turning". It simply means "engine turning patterns"
and refers to an ornamental pattern. Guilloché patterns can be seen
in neoclassic architecture and banknotes ( in an effort to deter forgery).
The technique as it pertains to jewelry making involves carving a design into a base metal.

Evans: United States.
Established as the D. Evans Case Co. in North Attleboro, Mass. in the early 1920s.

Famous for their mesh bottomed compacts and their guilloche enamel.
At some point in time, they became a division of Hilsingor Corp. of Plainville, Mass.
Disappeared after 1965.
