New, sealed in original sleeve (lightly tarnished inside). 9 7/8 inches (25 cm). 100% Authentic Christofle, bears Christofle hallmarks.
French Silver-maker Christofle is an enduring symbol of luxury, elegance and prestige in the art of silver. This item belongs to modern Christofle "Marly" silverplate collection.The Marly pattern represents in the eyes of many the quintessential refinement of a French-dressed table. The name owes its origin to the French Chateau of Marly, built in Paris by King Louis XIV as a place in which to host his guests after fox hunting hence avoiding the strict etiquette of the court at Versailles. The leafage which espouses the contour of the handles is typical of the Rococo revival and is a precursor to the Art Nouveau interest in the decorative capabilities of floral themes.
Created in 1883, the pattern has remained many a favorite and was chosen for the officers' quarters on board the Normandie Ocean Liner; by the President of Laos and the President of the Republic of Venezuela, to name a few.
