Sterling Flatware by Gorham, Chantilly Pattern. United States, c. 1970. This set has basic place settings for 8, and includes: demitasse, boullion or cream soup, and teaspoons. Plus relish, salad, lunch, and dinner forks; along with dinner and butter knives. Of these, additional pieces are to be had of the knives, along with the large and salad forks, the teaspoons and demitasse spoons. Rounding out the group are a large and a small "serving knifes," two small cold cut or relish prongs, sugar tongs, 2 large serving forks, various serving spoons and ladles, and sterling-handled knife sharpener and two carving sets. The carvers, dinner, butter and serving knives with stainless blades and hollow ware handles. Total weight, excluding the hollow ware pieces of at least 92 oz. of Sterling silver, with well over 115 pieces. Comparing prices charged for replacement pieces of this pattern, costs for the above eight-piece setting ranges about $250 per setting. The set essentially mint, showing little if any actual use. As a bonus, a pair of large salad serving spoon and fork by "MC," and another by Reed & Barton (both pairs in silverplate) are tossed in. An attractive pattern, with a good heft to the individual pieces, the successful bidder can augment his purchase as needed, since the pattern is still available.
Estimated Value $1,250 - 1,350.
First made in 1895, Chantilly is the most popular sterling silverware pattern of the 20th Century. It is still in production and is comprised of innumerable pieces.

Realized $1,725
