Christofle Malmaison

Included in the collection in 1967, Malmaison is the Christofle Empire model. The palm and lotus leaf frieze and the symmetry of the decoration are typical of the Empire style, which was largely inspired by Antiquity. This is one of Christofle’s most complete lines, the one that includes a caviar service.

Named after the Château de la Malmaison, the favorite residence of Napoleon Bonaparte and Empress Josephine, the Malmaison collection is characterised by its symmetrical motifs, alternating water leaves and palmettes, typical of the Empire style.

Under Napoleon III, nephew of Napoleon I, the Empire style became fashionable again. For their sumptuous receptions in Paris and Biarritz, Empress Eugenie and Napoleon III called on Christofle, which became the official supplier to the imperial couple.

In 1909, during the effervescence of the Roaring Twenties, Christofle brought the Empire style up to date by creating the Malmaison Empire Collection, which was simply renamed Malmaison in the 1960s.
