Originally a jeweler, Charles Christofle founded a goldsmith and tableware company in 1830. The Christofle company would eventually become known for exploring the electrolytic gilding and silver plating process. A silver-plated kylix from Christofle will be highlighted in Alex Cooper Auctioneers’ upcoming auction of Linda McRae Noe Laine’s estate. The late 19th-century piece was created in the style of the early Roman Empire. It shows the image of Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom, at the center. This high-relief piece is surrounded by a decorative palmette border.
Among the available porcelain lots are tableware items from Herend Porcelain Manufactory, which was founded in 1826. The following decade, Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph I gave the company the title “Purveyor to the Royal Court” for their services. The available hand-painted pieces include a vanity tray, a small tea tray, a double-handled square serving tray, and more. A Meissen porcelain partial dinner service and a pair of Chinese famille rose jar lamps will be presented in the auction as well. View each of these lots and register to bid on Bidsquare.
