About this item

"It would carry off objects of which it grew fond./And protect them by dropping them into the pond."

This extraordinary figure is immediately recognizable to all devotees of Edward Gorey. The Doubtful Guest's arrival, behaviour and intention to stay, mystifies his unsuspective hosts in one of Gorey's best loved works. Sterling silver piece measures approx 1 1/2" wide x 1 1/2" tall.

Created using the lost wax casting process where a carved or cast wax original is encased in clay or other investment, the wax is melted under temperature and the resulting voids are filled with molten metal. Used since early Egyptian times for casting fine metals where the highest level of detail was required.
