Caption

The silvering workshop in the 1860 Christofle factory. Realizing the commercial potential of the electroplating processes developed by Elkington and Ruolz, Charles Christofle (1805-63) had negotiated in 1842 licences to the French rights of the Elkington and Ruolz patents. His “galvanoplasty works” was a technologically advanced manufacturing plant which established a highly successful business in gold and silver plating in France. A talented businessman, Christofle had in the preceding ten years expanded a small Parisian jewellers to become the well-known firm of goldsmiths, silversmiths and cutlery manufacturers which exists to this day.
