CHRISTOFLE LUMIERE D'ARGENT PIERCED
SILVER-PLATE DUCK











French Silver-maker Christofle is an enduring symbol of luxury,
elegance and prestige in the art of the silversmith.

This auction is for the Christofle silverplate pierced or lace duck.
We have four pieces currently to choose from as per last photo.

Christofle’s “Lumiere D’argent Collection” comprises of many collectible animals
each intricately pierced to look like silverplated lace and eyes made of black onyx beads.
Manufactured in France, “Lustrous Silver Collection” pieces are coated with protective
varnish that helps to slow down the oxidization process so your silver pieces remains
shiny for a longer period of time.

There is a card as well in the box which states:
“This piece from the Christofle workshops in Paris is manufactured according to the
traditional techniques of French silversmiths.
A varnish protects it against tarnishing and eliminates the need for polishing.”

This cute duck is fully hallmarked Christofle with Christofle hallmarks
underneath which I tried to photograph but I don't have the right camera with me.

He has VERY LITTLE tarnish to his patina.
The black areas you can see in some of the photos are reflections from the
flash off the angles of the shiny surface of each creature.
If I was to rate him out of 10 (ie 10 being new) I would rate this one at 8.5/10.

He measures approx. 4.8cm high, 3cm wide and 4.7cm front to back.

SOLD!
