Thanks all who answered my guilloche question, especially Ed Colbeth
for directing me to Peter Rowe’s utterly fascinating article.

Peter, if you’re out there, I have one last question: can the
traditional Faberge engraved effect be achieved with a modern CNC
machine (for example, Servo Products with Precise high speed
spindles) as with an old Plante, Hall, or Field engine turning
machine? Or is there a distinct quality to hand work?

Richard Hyer in Chicago, where the wind is so strong, waves are
breaking as tall as the trees.

Rick, I’m not Peter Rowe but you must have missed a very informative
answer to your question, along with a very neat link that came with
the message. If you would follow the following link you will answer a
lot of your questions. “http://www.pledge.co.uk/” is an excellent
answer, I didn’t know that a company like that even existed!!! ~(:sunglasses:
