About the Item

English King (c. 1885) Patterns similar to our English King were first used in France and England late in the eighteenth century and have remained among the most popular styles for>flatware today, in both Europe and America. Tiffany & Co. first made its own version of English King in 1885. It harmonizes with any eighteenth-century-inspired style neo-Georgian, Colonial, Louis XVI, Sheraton, Chippendale, Adam or Hepplewhite. The rich, intricate decoration of Tiffany's English King pattern reflects the luxurious entertainments given during the latter part of the eighteenth century and will enhance and give a sense of occasion to present-day settings. Designed 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.
