This is one of Gorham's truly elegant patterns that is very feminine. Imperial Chrysanthemum was issued in 1894 and designed by William C. Codman. I am not even going to try to describe the pattern, except to say it is busy with the leaves and buds of the chrysanthemum. You can see the flower in full bloom on the shoulder of some of the serving pieces.
