Merri-Go-Round Silver Minaudiére
Vivian Alexander made this design to emphasize the large palette of enamel colors available. This minaudiére is one of our classic sterling silver proﬁles; we call it our ‘apple’ purse. The surface of this armature has been engine turned, or guillochéd to produce a brilliant shimmer that can be seen beneath the translucent enamels. The purse is about four inches in diameter and four and one-half inches tall, enough for your lipstick and keys, but too small for your smart phone. The vibrant enamels used on this purse are a dramatic example of the beauty derived from guilloché. The ﬁne lines engraved into the pure silver give a visual depth that can be achieved no other way. The purse is ready to ship, but if you have the time, we can create a bespoke piece in whatever colors and whatever design you desire.
