Rare Art Nouveau Gallia centrepiece (coupe) on stand. Model nº: 5181. Gallia is the brand name of the copper-tin alloy patented by Félix Chéron in 1896. It probably contained also antimony and bismuth. The items made of this alloy could be produced directly by casting and used for the creation of more sophisticated relief or more sculptural forms than those based on Alpacca. Using electroplating, this alloy was covered with silver. Félix Chéron immediately used this newly invented alloy for the production of a small series of highly decorative items, often made by distinguished artists and designers. The main purpose of the Gallia line was to satisfy the market with cheaper products and simultaneously to follow the current art tendencies. It is remarkable that nowadays on the world antiques market these "cheap" silver plate items are sold at 3-10 times higher prices than "luxury" Christofle products of the same period. The marks for Gallia metal items used in the first thirty years of production were based on the profile of the famous "coq gaullois" (Gallic cock). The silver-plated products, based on Gallia metal, during 1900-1935, were obligatorily marked by the model number. From the beginning, these model numbers were running from about 4100 until about 6100. The first Gallia mark consists of three parts: 1) The mark for Gallia base metal is like a coat of arms with a Gallic cock inside. 2) The Manufacture de L'Alfenide mark for silver-plating is the head of a goat placed in a rhombus in a hatched rectangle. 3) The model number between 4100 and 6100. Rare. Origin: France Period: 20th century, circa 1915. Conditions: Excellent. Wear consistent with age and use.
