Christoph Kay was born in 1869 in Bremen.
After following his education as apprentice-chiseller at the silver factory Koch & Bergfeld in Bremen, starting from 1889 he worked for the Bruckman & Söhne firm in Heilbronn. Around 1900 he spent his working days in Vienna, Prague, Dresden, Berlin, Leipzig and Munich.
In 1900 he was awarded with a bronze medal at the 'Great Paris Exhibition' in Paris.
From 1900–10 he was active as master-goldsmith for Alexander Schönauer.
From 1910 to 1920 he established his own company together with a partner, Otto Stüber.
From 1920 until his death in a bombardment in 1943 he had his own workshop in Hamburg, where he both executed his own designs as well as those from Carl Otto Czechsa and Behnke.
