An adorable PAIR of BEAR Sculptures


Since 1830, Christofle has been France's foremost supplier of fine silver. Working in a silver alloy

of the highest quality, artisans handcraft the flatware and hollowware that makes this brand legendary,

in designs ranging from museum reproductions to modern contemporary styles. Renowned for elegant

styling & quality, Christofle also creates porcelain & glass pieces for the table & home decor

These late 1980s (Retired many years ago) BEAR Sculptures are SILVER-PLATED

The pieces also were and still are at most parts treated with an anti-tarnish coat

They hail from the famed LUMIÈRE D'ARGENT Collection

Made in France

These Pre-Owned sculptures are in exceedingly EXCELLENT CONDITION

They were displayed in a glass case for all these years

As these vintage beauties were part of a large collection

(purchased mostly in the late 1980s or early 1990s),

Some may have been actually serviced by Christofle at some point

(I can't remember which was and which wasn't - Sorry)

As a result, the anti-tarnish coat may have been slightly worn out at certain spots

Naturally, they can be polished with great ease and all look phenomenal!

I have listed & will be listing several other animal figurines from this Series ...

(Some you see in the pictures were already sold)

a 3 Duck set, a 2 Kitten set, a 2 Puppy set, a baby Elephant, a baby Seal, a Pelican, a Deer,

And finally a lovely Panther that is not Lumière D'argent but very similar
