A beautiful antique French powder jar with guilloche enamel. The scene seems to depict Cupid and Psyche in a rich caramel colored enamel. Intricate details from all angles and marked France on the bottom. Still has the original glass insert and beveled mirror intact on the inside. Jar measures 1.75”x2.50”.
“Guilloche enamel is a form of work that involves using the lathe to work the metal into a pattern and then enameling over that pattern.”
