A Modernist Design, Decorative Table Box
Made by Christofle et Cie, Paris
Silver plate on Christofle's "Gallia Metal", acrylic lucite lid
French, Circa 1970’s
Measures: 5.2 cm high x 17 cm long x 10 cm wide
Marks: "CHRISTOFLE / FRANCE" with their ""OC" knight chess-piece" touchmark for ["ORFÈVRERIE CHRISTOFLE") and "COLL.GALLIA" [for "COLLECTION GALLIA"]
A very striking and beautifully engineered box, designed by Christofle France. The elegantly simple silver-plated rectancular box-base is topped with a large slab of lucite, the exact dimensions of the box below. This gives it a sculptural quality almost reminiscent of the work of Donald Judd (1928–1994).
Very good condition. Minimal wear to the metal. Very few marks to the lucite.
The box is beautiful empty - but we can't help think that it would look amazing filled with "Sobranie Cocktail" cigarettes!
