Model created on the 16th of may 1884, Alphonse Debain won Gold Medal at the Universal Exhibition of 1889 in Paris with this ingenious asparagus grip. This innovative system was picked up by other silversmiths as the prestigious Maison Christofle and Puiforcat.

Prestigious silversmith:
Maison Christofle.

The workshops continue to manufacture entirely made by hand according to ancient techniques (shooting-spinning, planing, chiseling, engraving,). Like haute couture, Christofle continues the tradition of "High Silver". The Maison Christofle's influence on French silver-making in the 19th century is inestimable, an exhibitor and jury member for most of the universal exhibitions, they made and wrote history at the same time.
