Guilloche is a decorative technique that appeared in the 16th century, consisting of creating patterns by chiseling the parts to be decorated on the silver metal. This produces delicate, geometrical patterns a tenth of a millimetre wide. The technique requires extreme precision, the expertise of master guilloche workers and proficiency in a gesture handed down from generation to generation. A true work of art, the guilloche technique has enabled Ercuis to create diverse and refined decorations to embellish the handles of its Miroir flatware. The absolute mastery of silver plating, assembly and polishing operations by our master silversmiths, before each piece is stamped, allows us to certify their prestigious origin and is guaranteed by the Ercuis maker’s mark.
