Austrian 812/1000 Standard Solid Silver and Gilt Snuff Box, Prague, 1861

An Austrian silversmith enlisted a rose engine lathe to achieve the intricate patterns on all sides of this solid silver snuff box. The pattern, known as engine turning or guilloche, was developed as early as the 15th century, and became popular in the European courts of the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The lathe turned the metal article against changeable cutting tools. Karl Faberge incorporated this technique to produce his famed eggs for the Russian Tzars.
