The silver plated serving ladle in the Malmaison pattern is perfect for dishing up rice and potatoes. The wide and round bowl minimizes damage to the food. One of Christofle's most historic patterns, Malmaison typifies the Empire style, with its frieze of delicate palm and lotus leaves and symmetrical design. The name is a nod to the Chateau de la Malmaison, a favored Parisian residence of Napoleon Bonaparte and Empress Josephine.
Since its founding in 1830, the house has continually renewed its exceptional silversmithing know-how and techniques. It has expanded its offer to include all aspects of the modern lifestyle-Table Arts, Bar and Oenology, Home Décor, Baby and children Gifts, High Silversmithing- as well as Jewelry and Personal accessories.
Alongside the Christofle Studio’s creations, the House collaborates with the greatest designers and artists of the day to offer contemporary, ambitious pieces crafted by the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (Best Craftsmen in France).
Works by artists and designers, historic re-editions and reproductions, custom orders and other exceptional pieces are crafted in the workshops of Christofle’s production facility in Yainville, France (Normandy).
