Gallia Christofle Art Nouveau Elegant Vase Design Poinçon Maitre

About

Poinçon Maitre goldsmith The Christofle name is synonymous with both innovative manufacturing and elegant design in the world of silversmiths and antiques. Christofle has spanned many artistic movements and has a wealth of items that can show the variations in style and design as fashions changed and artistic movements progressed. Christofle covered many artistic movements such as Historicism, Naturalism, Orientalism, Japanism, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and will continue to adapt their designs to suit the latest artistic styles and fashion demands. Christofle history Beginning in 1830, when Charles Christofle entered his family business, a small jewellery workshop in Marais, Paris. Charles developed and expanded the business to manufacture impressive, quality metalwork. Christofle held the patent for electroplating which gave the business an advantage with their technologically advanced practices. This helped to steer the Christofle name into a wider market, where Christofle not only created high-quality plated goods but also added a range of solid silverware. The combination of both impressed critics and won Christofle many important commissions. The high craftsmanship and quality ensured that Christofle was present at every table of royals and aristocrats. Christofle is still a family run business and is now into its fifth generation, which shows how quality silversmiths can stand the test of time. However, it hasn’t always been plain-sailing for the Christofle brand. The economic depression that followed World War One was coupled with unfortunate management of the brand which meant Christofle lost their factory in Germany and almost faced financial ruin. The use of Gallia metal Gallia metal was used extensively during the Art Deco period, although Christofle had been using a similar metal earlier than this when they bought ALFENIDE lock, stock and barrel. Gallia is a brand name of a copper-tin alloy, and using the patented technique of electroplating, it was possible to be covered with silver. Gallia was used by Christofle to appeal to a wider market as Gallia was cheaper, but also sustained the highly decorative and fashionable designs.
