Antique Chippendale Sterling Silver Patterns

The Chippendale pattern of silverware is named after Thomas Chippendale, a cabinet-maker who not only designed furniture, but interiors of rooms. The design is distinctive for having a center that emerges from a narrow point at the bottom of the handle, to smoothly and uninterruptedly broaden toward the top, spreading in a simulated fleur de lis with other spreading bands broadening slightly on either side at the top, so that the top is wide, like a trumpet-shaped flower with petals. Sometimes there are modest designs at the intersections where the side bands meet the center, but in some cases, a simple rim surrounds the modified design. The Chippendale pattern includes French Chippendale, English Chippendale and the simple Chippendale design.
