The Mythologique pattern was designed by Antoine Heller, a French silversmith trained under the influence of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in the studio of Jean-Leon Gerome. Joining Gorham in 1881 after a brief stint at Tiffany Co., Heller served as the companys chief designer until his death in 1904, and led the company in adopting the academic style that harkened back to ancient Greek and Roman traditions. He was especially known for the precision with which he executed the steel dies that would be used for the drop presses. This talent was remarked upon with envy by several French critics and journals including La France, who lauded, M. Heller is at once an inspired artist, having the gift of style, of grace and of elegance and a workman possessing a skill without a rivala hand for which no obstacle exists.
