Christofle has imagined a collection that plays with lights and waterways like a walk in the forest. The collection reimagines the Surtout, which can be used as a tray and/or centerpiece, serving as a wonderful decoration.
The term "Surtout" appeared in the last years of the reign of Louis XIV with the arrival of French service. The Surtout was used to display serving items such as salt shakers, spice boxes, oil dishes, vinegar dishes and sugar bowls, items that remained on the table throughout the meal. With the evolution of uses, the Surtout gradually lost its utilitarian function to become a table decoration, a prestigious distinction. Christofle has made many "Surtout" since it was founded in 1830, including the famous Napoleon III Surtout which is now on display at the MAD Museum in Paris.
