A fabulous vintage silver plated tray by the creme de la creme of makers, Christofle of Paris. The design of the "Malmaison" collection from the Parisian silversmith Christofle was inspired by the French Empire style of the early nineteenth century. It is not only the aesthetic quality of the Napoleonic era that is incorporated into the "Malmaison" line but also its strict and linear design. This series of sophisticated silver products picks up popular motifs from that period, for example the stylistic arrangements of palm leaves and lotus flowers. Another famous characteristic of the Empire style is the so-called palmette border composed of the tips of palm leaves.
