Christofle’s designs have traveled through artistic stages and movements such as historicism, naturalism, orientalism, art nouveau and art deco. Today, in the 21st century, the house continues to invite contemporary designers to collaborate in goldsmith design. With the arrival of the Second Empire, the Christofle House was awarded the title of “State Provider”, thus manufacturing very exclusive pieces for the Elysee and the Tuileries Palace, places from where the country was governed.
Christofle manufactures parts by hand according to traditional techniques. Each artist personally makes the necessary tool for their craft, molds it to fit their own hand, and remains its sole owner and user.
Gunni & Trentino is an official Christofle distributor.
