which is not connected immediately with the name Christofle on the first view. Differently than in the segment of the china the glasses of Christofle are independent objects which form an attractive contrast to the cutlery and silver table accessories. Though we find again known names - like Albi, Cluny or Marly, however, the implementation of the decors and forms is here completely different. The glass series Albi still is similar to his namesakes in the table accessories and cutlery. The simple lines without any decoration which trust exclusively in the beauty of her shape.
of hand-blown crystal glass. Albi is the most changeable series of the glasses which fits too many other board scenes. Nevertheless, to all at the head the series Irinana is to be named. This hand-blown crystal glass is provided on all parts with a vertical elegant cut. The true changeableness of this model appears in different long-stemmed wineglasses and champagne glasses and of course also in the legendary whiskey glasses and tumblers. The fact that, however, decoration is elegant, very expressive and reserved at the same time, so that it lets itself combine with a lot of other decors. A real exception of the crystal series are the goblets of the series Marly. This crystal glass is decorated with a wide border of a melted on golden decoration. The strong cut crystal and the filigree wide spreaded decoration make every glass of Marly a magnificent object. And with it not enough: Marly is also available with a red ground which let shine the wide decoration even more. With this decoration the crystal series is by far the most magnificent and most opulent ones.
– named after an Indonesian knife - is completely different. The Kawali series is available in eight colours and in clear crystal, all parts are made from bold hand-blown lead crystal. While the china series submits to the patterns of the cutlery, Christofle proves his competence from the material crystal to work out the maximum in brilliance. Kawali is for it the best example. Jewels - and near in the today's life style and the topical currents.
