Tiffany & Co.'s Chrysanthemum pattern is one of the most magnificent and celebrated sterling silver designs of the 19th century. It was introduced in 1878 and patented on September 21, 1880 (no. 11968) by Charles T. Grosjean, one of the most influential silversmiths in Tiffany's history. The son of a silversmith who emigrated to the United States in 1836, Grosjean's father sold pieces to Tiffany during the 1850s. The younger Grosjean joined Tiffany as the manager of the company's prince Street silverworks and he quickly became a driving force in the overall success of Tiffany's silver business.
