represented brands / CHRISTOFLE
Christofle was founded in 1830 by Charles Christofle, whose master silversmith stamps were registered in 1845, the date of the first silver-plating factory.
In 1851 Emperor Napoleon III ordered all of the Empire’s official table services from Christofle.
A symbol of luxury and elegance thanks to its basic material, silver, Christofle revolutionized the style, techniques, and production and distribution methods for silver products and the decorative arts over the years. Limited and numbered, all Christofle products are true works of art, prized by collectors all over the world because they are unique.
With the soul of a pioneer, Christofle has always associated its name with major creative movements and with famous artists like Man Ray and Jean Cocteau, avant-garde architects like Gio Ponti, modernist silver designers like Lino Sabattini and Christian Fjerdingstad, today’s designers, such as Martin Szekely and Andrée Putman, and, more recently, Richard Hutten and Ora-Ïto.
Christofle has a «Silver Spirit» that reflects the brand’s exceptional knowledge of silvercraft and the meticulous and loving attention to the creation, quality and timeless elegance of all its pieces.
