Christofle Malmaison Silverplate Flatware
The frieze of delicate palmettes and lotus leaves on the spatula and the outer edge of this flatware are motifs characteristic of the Empire style. This model is named after the Malmaison chateau near Paris, the favorite residence of Napoleon Bonaparte and the empress Josephine. From Christofle
The silver plate Malmaison pattern is part of 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.
