A New Item, Some Guyot History, and a Contest!
Isn't this a beautiful piece? Its shape reminds me of the fragile glass ornaments hanging from our family Christmas tree that I would wonder at as a child. It is the newest shape to come from a series of filigrees that began as a square. Not long after World War II, the company resumed its manufacturing of decorative stampings, as the medical support items George Guyot produced for the war effort were no longer needed.
While I was shooting this piece for the e-letter, I started to think about how many items can come from a single filigree. This is one of many shapes that came from a one and three-quarter inch square, and from that square a whole family of filigrees was born. And this led to the idea of hosting a contest!
01276 (the original filigree in this series), 01277, 01278, 01279
01280, 01281, 01282, 06657
07738, 07714, 07746
