Charles T. Grosjean was one of the most influential silversmiths in Tiffany’s history, and his designs are among the most enduring of the Tiffany patterns. The son of a silversmith, he 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. Grosjean’s Chrysanthemum found particular favor with socialites and new brides despite the fact that it was one of the most expensive of the Tiffany patterns, with a nearly 35% price increase over other stock patterns due to its intricate workmanship. The pattern was carried over to many forms of hollowware as well, which also enjoyed tremendous popularity. Chrysanthemum is still considered the top pattern that Tiffany ever produced.
