Talisman, the silver-plated metal collection traces its shining lines, a tribute to the ornamental designs of the Belle Epoque, on the matte finish of the lacquer, creating a subtle or spectacular contrast depending on the tone selected.


A manifesto collection that illustrates the excellence of the Maison through the use of the cloisonné enamel technique, in which reserves are carved into the metal to host the enamel of the motif.


Talisman is a precious and unique model, exclusively made to order and offered in an infinite range of shades.

Christofle begins the process by stamping the cover in the chosen metal, leaving hollow parts to accommodate the lacquer. After this step, it is sanded. This sanding allows the lacquer to cling on to the metal.


Then, 2 coats of lacquer are applied to give the color and 16 coats of varnish. This step is repeated numerous times and is applied by hand. This allows Talisman to be solid and resistant.


The final step entails a topcoat of emery-coating to distinguish the contrast between the colored lacquer and metal frame. After, each piece is hand polished to reveal the perfect shine. The Art Deco design of the ribs amplifies the saturation of the chosen color.




In 1986, Bernard Yot and Studio Christofle designed Talisman, inspired by the Art Deco style. It is a collection unlike any other, that celebrates color and the uniqueness of the hosts who chooses it.


With Talisman, the vibrant model from the Maison Christofle, you can create your own signature on the table by selecting the colors of your service to suit your taste. Elevate your dining experience with a color palette that knows no limits other than your imagination.
