Charming early 1850's Christofle large handled silverplate basket / vannerie. This is a tightly woven, top of the line, early Christofle piece, not one from their later, more affordable, collection. It is clearly marked on the underside CHRISTOFLE, the oval in a rectangle mark used between 1842 and 1864 with letters CC on either side of a scale topped by stars and number 84 in the center. It is also numbered 84520 which corresponds to a production date circa early 1850's. Christofle's origins date to 1830 when Charles Christofle took over the management of his parent's small Paris jewelry shop. The firm employed only the most talented workmen, designers and sculptors. Charles promoted the firm participating in international exhibitions where Christofle was always distinguished. This resulted in commissions from Emperor Napoleon III of France, among other royalty, and the aristocracy soon followed. After five generations, Christofle is still family owned and operated, and remains the purveyor of elegant design and superior quality tableware worldwide. A tasteful piece that fits into any setting, formal or informal. In very good used condition with tarnish and wear to plate consistent with age as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number. Artichokes are for illustration purposes only and not included.

Measurements: 12" long by 8 1/2" wide by 7" high including handle approximately.
