Description: 'Cannetille' was a filigree technique popular in Europe in the 1820's and 30's, it features very detailed wire and granulation work to create a beautifully textured gold surface. Around the turn of the century the English trained Indian jewelers in their most labor intensive jewelry techniques in order to produce these pieces at a lower cost. This is a perfect example of such a piece, made in India for the Edwardian English market.
