Guilloché (Guilloche) technique was invented in Europe, in 17th century, at the very beginning of Industrial Era. It is a decorative engraving that involves a technique of engine turning called guilloché in French after the French engineer “Guillot”, who invented a machine “that could scratch fine patterns and designs on metallic surfaces.” Peter Carl Faberge started applying translucent enamel over guilloché metal on Faberge eggs and other decorative objects from the 1880's. The last machines were manufactured around 1948–1949
