CHRISTOFLE is a French goldsmith and tableware company, established in Paris in 1830 by Charles Christofle.

The company is famous for having introduced electrolytic gold and silver plating in France in 1842. The company was acquired in 2012 by one of its shareholders, the luxury group owned by the Chalhoub family.

Christofle’s manufacturing is entirely handmade, using traditional techniques. The precious crafts of metal spinning, planishing, chiselling and engraving, perpetuated by Master silversmiths and ‘Meilleurs Ouvriers de France’ immortalise the qualities of elegance and excellence of all Christofle pieces. It is this irreplaceable know-how perpetuated by highly skilled craftsmen, passed on from master to student, which constitutes Christofle's living heritage. True ‘Living Treasures’.
