Silverplate Trays  in Chantilly by Gorham

Replacements, Ltd. is featuring three different silverplate trays in a new release of the Gorham Silver "Chantilly" pattern that are as affordable as they are attractive. The “Chantilly” round, handled 14 1/2-inch tray, the 18 1/2-inch bread tray, and the 15 1/2-inch round tray are available. These beautiful trays are arriving just in time for Mother’s Day and the wedding season!

The “Chantilly” pattern, designed by William Christmas Codman for Gorham Silver in 1895, has become one of the most popular silver patterns ever produced. Although it has been around for more than a century, it remains popular among new brides and grooms. Chantilly's graceful border and floral designs were inspired by the “Rococo” style of early 18th century France. During the reign of King Louis XV, Rococo emerged in response to the heavier, highly ornate art of the late Baroque period. Rococo featured elaborate designs with playful swirls, scrolls, and elaborate decoration.

The pattern was produced by an American legend, Gorham Silver. Jabez Gorham founded the company in 1831 in a shop on Steeple Street in Providence, RI. Born to a family of eight, Jabez was apprenticed to New England silver patriarch Nehemiah Dodge at a very early age. Dodge is recognized as one of the founders of the silver and jewelry crafts industry in 18th century New England. After his seven-year apprenticeship with Dodge, Jabez formed his own business and quickly established a name for himself, creating distinctive hand-crafted silver pieces. The company’s reputation for excellence endures today. By 1875 Gorham Silver had more than 400 employees, and in 1890 the company moved to a 30-acre campus in Providence. Renowned architect Stanford White designed a spectacular office building for Gorham Silver in 1905 and the company opened a store on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Gorham has continued to prosper, expanding into other dinnerware product categories, manufacturing delicate yet versatile china as well as high-quality crystal.
