This is a wonderful pair of English antique sterling silver salvers by the world famous silversmith Paul Storr.

They have hallmarks for London 1814, the makers mark of Paul Storr and are typical of his work with the exquisitely detailed rims and feet and the superb engraved decoration.

They each bear a beautifully engraved coat of arms and a crest which I have not yet had the time to research.

Paul Storr (Westminster 1771 - Tooting 1844)

born in London England in 1771, was to become one of the most talented silversmiths and goldsmiths of the nineteenth century. Today his legacy of exceptionally well crafted silver, found worldwide in museums and private collections, leaves one in awe when compared to that of his contemporaries. After having served a seven year apprenticeship from the age of 14, he began his career in 1792 when he went into a brief partnership with William Frisbee. This did not last and in 1793 a new mark, (his initials 'P S') was entered. By the beginning of the nineteenth century he had established himself as one of London's top silversmiths producing, amongst others, commissions for Royalty.

In 1801 he married Elizabeth Susanna Beyer with whom he was to have ten children. In 1807 Paul Storr entered into a working relationship with Philip Rundell and by 1811 was a partner, and managing the workshops for Rundell, Bridge & Rundell.

During this period he kept his own marks and separate workshop. However it was through Rundell, Bridge & Rundell who were appointed Goldsmith in Ordinary to George III in 1804 that his reputation as a master silversmith grew. His talents lay in being able to transform ideas and designs from Rundell, Bridge & Rundell's designers, William Theed II, the chief modeller and head of the design department, and later John Flaxman II who succeeded him in 1817. During this period Rundell, Bridge & Rundell's reputation grew due to the patronage of the Prince Regent (later George IV).
