The history of the brand
The company Christofle specializes in silverware and was founded in 1830 by the homonymous Charles Christofle whose fame grew rapidly. Napoleon III bought all the silver tableware from Christofle and gave him the titles of goldsmith of the king and official supplier of the emperor. In this way the other sovereigns began to eye the silver of Christofle and order them; the brand thus began to sell its objects to all embassies in the world and luxury hotels. Charles was born as a jeweler and this passion of his helped him as he was the first to patent electrolysis in gold and silver thus managing to plate these two materials and for 15 years he was the only one in all of France. This increased the prestige of the served Christofle .
