Chanticleer = Rooster
This design Chanticleer was partly inspired by Key West and of French style. Wild roosters roam around the Key West neighborhood and there is a delightful freedom felt as these characters strut their stuff. Mixed in are beautiful orchids and tropical vines as the roosters pose from time to time amongst the palm fronds and ferns. Chanticleer is French and it means “sing clear” and can refer to a Rooster appearing in fables. I always name my book after a pattern and so the Jaima Brown Home Chanticleer Collection was named after this design.
Also, the rooster motif or image often represents a symbol of France. I have a beautiful small oil painting that I bought in Paris, France which is just 2 roosters and a mother hen on the side of a farm road. A classic scene in the French countryside. This pattern is found in the JBH Chanticleer Collection.
