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 especially 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 comprised elaborate designs with playful swirls, scrolls, and decoration. The Chantilly-Duchess pattern features a distinctive scroll design with fleur-de-lis accents.
Chantilly-Duchess was produced by a legendary American company, Gorham Silver. Jabez Gorham, its founder, born into a family of eight, was apprenticed to 18th century New England silver patriarch Nehemiah Dodge at a very early age. After his apprenticeship, Gorham founded his own company in 1831 in a shop on Steeple Street in Providence, RI. He quickly established a reputation for creating distinctive hand-crafted silver of the highest quality. Gorham Silver’s reputation for excellence endures today.
