This new process allowed the fabrication of huge series of cutlery that could be plated later. Up to this point, Christofle's cutlery was made one by one and could not keep up with demand. Christofle was reluctant to mass produce his own pieces. At the time, he was a bit restless to go on to some other type of metal work. Since the new production method required a heavy financial investment, Christofle signed a contract with Halphen, who was already making maillechort cutlery at his rue de Bondy factory. Under this agreement, cutlery for Christofle was designed by Christofle, Halphen produced the unplated maillechort pieces and then Christofle did the plating - See an example of the Halphen & Christofle Partnership an advert is shown in the picture gallery, this is not included in the sale, shown for your reference only.
