(c1880) originally called Indian Chrysanthemum .Tiffany's luxurious
Chrysanthemum silver was designed in 1880 by Charles Grosjean. With its
flowing curves, swirling vegetation, meandering tendrils, and exotic
blossoming flowers, Chrysanthemum is characteristic of The Tiffany
Style or Art Nouveau, as the naturalistic style is now commonly known.
The rich and graceful flowering motifs of Chrysanthemum were undoubtedly
influenced by founder Louis Comfort Tiffany. They make Chrysanthemum
the most sumptuous of any American pattern.
by Charles Grosjean (1841-1888). Grosjean worked in his family's firm
which produced high end silverware to prominent New York City retailers,
including Tiffany. Upon his father's death, Grosjean left his family
firm to become superintendent of Tiffany's silver factory in 1868. He
had great background in silver and was an artist and was referred to as
"one of the best living decorators of silver". He was a teacher in the
Tiffany School and designed a few full lines of sterling patterns for
Tiffany in his short time with the company before his unfortunate and
sudden death. His patterns Chrysanthemum (formally Indian Chrysanthemum)
and English King are some of the most famous of his designs, and of
Tiffany in general.
