Neillo Is a black mixture, usually of sulghur, copper, silver, and lead used as an inlay on engraved or etched metal, especially silver. It is added as a powder or paste, then fired until it melts or at least softens, and flows or is pushed into the engraved lines in the metal. It hardens and blackens when cool, and the niello on the flat surface is polished off to show the filled lines in black, contrasting with the polished metal around it. It may also be used with other metalworking techniques to cover larger areas, as seen in the sky in the diptvch illustrated here. The metal where niello is to be placed is often roughened to provide a key. In many cases, especially in objects that have been buried underground, where the niello is now lost, the roughened surface indicates that it was once there. All authentic, antique, suburb […]

Antique Victorian 800 Silver Niello Watch Chain Sautoir Necklace-Rare. 55.11 inches long. One of the clasps closes hard, but in my opinion this is not a big problem. I sell antique and vintage collectible stuff – unique items that have history, and may show signs of this – it’s part of their charm. Please be sure to view all photos carefully as they are included as part of the item description! I try to describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can. However, as most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life.
