Durgin's chrysanthemum pattern was introduced in 1893. Enameling was available as a custom option, and white flowers and green leaves are more commonly found. Enameled pieces with red and white blossoms with green leaves are far rarer. See William P. Hood Jr. et al., "Flatware by the William B. Durgin Company, Part I: Chrysanthemum", Silver Magazine, May/June 2002, pp. 20-29.
