Christofle (Cardeilhac) - Silversmith to the King !

As silversmith to the the Kings and Queens of Europe, the French silversmith Christofle, formerly known as Cardeilhac, stands as a prominent figure in the history of silver craftsmanship. With a legacy that spans over two centuries, the house of Christofle has been synonymous with excellence in silverware, catering to the needs of French royalty, the elite, and connoisseurs of fine craftsmanship worldwide.  The history of Christofle (Cardeilhac) traces its roots to the early 19th century. In 1830, Charles Christofle, a jeweler from Paris, joined forces with Antoine Cardeilhac, a talented silversmith, to form a partnership that would later become one of the most celebrated names in silverware. Initially named Cardeilhac, the company quickly gained recognition for its exceptional craftsmanship and commitment to quality.

One of the factors that contributed significantly to the success of Cardeilhac was its early association with French royalty. In 1842, the company received the prestigious title of "Fournisseur de l'Empereur" (Supplier to the Emperor) under Napoleon III. This royal patronage not only elevated Cardeilhac's reputation but also provided access to a wealthy and influential clientele.  In 1862, Charles Christofle assumed sole ownership of the company and subsequently changed its name to "Christofle."  At the heart of Christofle's success lies its unwavering commitment to the art of silversmithing. The silversmiths at Christofle are renowned for their exceptional skill and attention to detail, ensuring that each piece of silverware is a masterpiece in its own right. The process involves a combination of traditional craftsmanship and modern techniques, resulting in pieces that are both functional and aesthetically captivating.

Christofle's influence on the art of silversmithing cannot be overstated. The company's dedication to innovation and design has set industry standards and inspired generations of silversmiths. Its ability to adapt to changing tastes and technologies while maintaining a commitment to traditional craftsmanship has been a driving force in the evolution of silverware.  The enduring legacy of Christofle is underscored by its commitment to maintaining the highest standards of craftsmanship and design. Today, the company operates as the Christofle Maison, with a continued dedication to producing exquisite silverware, tableware, and decorative items that reflect the brand's rich heritage.  In the 21st century, Christofle has embraced sustainability and modernity as core values. The company is actively engaged in eco-friendly practices, including recycling and responsible sourcing of materials. Furthermore, Christofle has continued to collaborate with contemporary designers, ensuring that its offerings remain relevant and innovative.  We are happy to offer a wide selection of the finest sterling silver flatware, tableware and tea sets bearing the distinguished “Christofle” “Cardeilhac” hallmarks.  Buy with confidence and enjoy 100% buyer protection.
