CHRISTOFLE is a French metalsmithing 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 Chalhoub family's luxury group.

Christofle's products are entirely handmade according to traditional techniques. The precious trades of turning and pressing, flattening, chiselling and engraving, perpetuated by its master goldsmiths and the best workers in France, immortalise the qualities of elegance and excellence of all Christofle pieces. This irreplaceable human know-how is carried on by highly qualified craftsmen.
