Care of our Vintage pieces

The pieces of the Christofle Vintage Collection are second hand pieces selected and authenticated by Christofle.

These pieces are in good condition and restored in our workshops in Yainville (Normandy).

They have been polished by our goldsmiths to give them back their shine while preserving the patina linked to time and use.

Take care of your silverware

In order to preserve the beauty of your Vintage silverware, we advise you to maintain it with a Christofle product: the antioxidant liquid occasionally and the polishing gloves for regular maintenance.

 

For maintenance with polishing gloves: be sure to remove your jewelry and pass the glove over the entire piece to restore its shine.

 

For maintenance with the antioxidant liquid, refer to the product's instructions.

Beforehand, make sure to remove the piece from its antioxidant pouch. This pouch is doubled with antioxidant fabric to protect your piece from oxidation.

Care advices

Your Vintage silverware can be cleaned by hand or in the dishwasher,
except of your knives, which we do not recommend putting in the dishwasher.

Hand wash

Wash immediately after use (avoid prolonged contact with acidic foods such as eggs, lemon or vinegar). If you do not wash immediately, rinse your cutlery in hot water.

Use a soft sponge and soapy water (avoid any dishwashing liquid that contains chlorine, citric acid, or citrus or lemon scent).

Be careful to never use the scrubbing side of the sponge and avoid contact with bleach and rubber gloves.

After washing, it is recommended to wipe immediately to avoid any trace of water with a soft cloth.

 

Clean in the dishwasher

Only use detergent powders without chlorine or sulfur and avoid liquids, gels or tablets. 

We do not recommend the use of lemon detergent.

Separate from stainless steel cutlery to avoid scratching and discoloration.

Half-open the door at the end of the cycle to avoid condensation stains.

As the knife blade attachment system has evolved over the centuries, we strongly advise against putting Vintage knives in the dishwasher, as there is a risk that the handles and blades will come apart.
