Chantilly by Gorham Silver
Real Rococo Design Influence

Chantilly by Gorham Silver is one of the most popular flatware patterns in sterling history, and was designed by William Christmas Codman (1839-1921) for Gorham Silver in 1895. Gorham’s Chantilly has been the service of choice for the U.S. Presidential jet Air Force One as well as for the homes of royalty around the world. Chantilly's scrolled border, glossy center, and fleur-de-lis tip are inspired by the “Rococo” design style of the 18th century French "Regency" period, which featured a pleasing contrast of ornate decoration and understated grace. The word “Rococo” is a combination of the French word “racaille,” meaning shell, and “barocco,” the Italian word for Baroque. Applied art in the Rococo tradition is characterized by shell-like curves, playful use of color and line, and opulent ornamentation. William Hogarth, an English painter and writer characterized the Rococo style in his “Analysis of Beauty” by saying that the S-curves so prominent in rococo styling were the very essence of grace and beauty in art and nature.

Chantilly’s wonderful design, paired with Gorham’s unwavering quality craftsmanship, has made this pattern a best seller for over 110 years. Replacements, Ltd. carries original pieces featuring the “lion/anchor/G” backstamp (these pieces were made from 1895-1949) as well as pieces with the “Gorham” backstamp (the pieces have been made since 1950 and are still being produced). We also have a great selection of hollowware (Including C hantilly-Duchess , Chantilly-Floral, and Chantilly-Grand ) and monogrammed pieces in Chantilly sterling as well.
