Cloisonne / Guilloche: Evans' catalogs refer to their Guilloche lighters as 'cloisonne'. No stretch of the word 'cloisonne' makes the term correct for these lighters.

Limoge: Some lighters, in addition to being referenced in Evans' materials as cloisonne is referenced in other materials a s'Limoges' - French enamel. Limoge is a French city and is also the name for a certain process of applying enamels to copper and pottery.

Here, both Evans' terms Limoge and Cloisonne are referenced as Guilloche.
