Attempts for the location of modern Greek silversmith workshops

The determination of the provenance of a modern Greek piece of jewelry is a difficult task, as silversmiths never signed their work. But, the kiusteki ( a piece of jewelry worn on the chest), of the Gouti collection, gathers all the elements that permit us to attribute it to a workshop of Lamia and more precisely to the artisan K. CHRISTO. It dates back to 1900. The jewel is handicrafted in savati (niello) technique, which substitutes the expensive technique of enamel.
