By Christofle (French, active from 1830)
This set of silver-plate knife rests by Christofle features six pairs of animal models designed by the famed Swiss Cubist sculptor Edouard Marcel Sandoz.
This superb knife rests in this set of twelve were designed for Christofle’s 'Gallia' line by the celebrated Swiss Cubist sculptor Edouard Marcel Sandoz, who lived from 1881 to 1971. The knife rests are silver plated, and the set is comprised of a hound, a cat, a bear, a fox, a pig, and a bird. The animals are presented in a distinctive style that hints at both Cubism and the Art Deco.
Each knife rest is stamped 'Collection Gallia', 'Christofle France', and features the Christofle plate mark. The set is contained within a fitted case inscribed ‘Christofle’ to the inside of the lid.
