Gallia Metal


As an interested collector of Art Deco & Art Nouveau items, I discovered that there is almost no information on the Internet about this early 1900 manufacturer of plated silver/silver (métal argenté) objects.
Therefore this site to present and collect Gallia related links.

Coffee and tea set signed Gallia ( Christofle).

GALLIA was the manufacture opened by CHRISTOFLE at Saint-Jean-de-Bournay (Isère / SOUTH of FRANCE) when they invented the new process of Galvanoplasty, at the end of the 19th Century.
