This antique bowl was manufactured by Gorham in a fancy floral and scroll motif pattern that we believe to be Chantilly Grand, c. 1900 - 1915.


The Grand pattern is the most ornate of the Chantilly designs, which also includes Floral, Countess and Duchess.


This bowl is in very nice estate condition, with no dents, creases, breaks or significant issues of any kind. Extremely close, magnified inspection revealed two minute, pin head size very tiny, light impressions near the edge, on the flat bottom.


Very ornate small period script monogram, possibly; ATL.


The bowl is well made and quite substantial for size, featuring a high quality rolled edge finish.


In addition to the standard hallmarks this bowl also shows the factory Gorham scratch marks; two U's and a square.  See last image; faint marks located between the Sterling mark and A2694 model/style number. These types of marks are frequently found on very high end Gorham articles.  As described in the book by L. J. Pristo, Ph.D. ~ Martele  950 1000 Fine  Gorham's Art Nouveau Silver: Many pieces of Martele, as well as other Gorham items will have a group of figures or letters scratched into them, similar to jeweler marks on a watch.

A complete description of these marks can be found in the aforementioned book.


Gorham Chantilly Grand hollowware pieces are quite difficult to find and highly collectible.
