IMPORTANT ENGLISH STERLING SILVER PAUL STORR COVERED ENTREE DISH; FAMILY CREST OF SHEEP WITH BANNER; EXCELLENT CONDITION
This is a museum worthy 1828 sterling silver Paul Storr covered entree dish.
Storr was without question, the most important London silversmith of all time.
First listed in 1792 with William Fearn. His mastery of the Neo-classical style of the Regency period was without equal. Later he produced some less famous rococo creations.
Much of the silver in the Royal collection can be traced to him. Along with examples in every major collection worldwide.
His production of fine silver even surpassed Lamerie, of the previous generation.
The entree displays beautifully engraved family crest. Standing sheep with banner, beneath shade tree.
Classic oval form.
Elegant thin petal gadrooned trim.
Domed cover well fit. Topped with the original twin leaf cap panelled, crossed bough finial. Atop stepped pedestal base. Twist and lock or bayonet mechanism secures to cover.
This museum worthy 1828 Paul Storr crossed bough finial covered entree is 12 1/2 inches long.
Exceptionally thick, heavy guage sterling weighs 36 (standard) ounces.
Hallmarked in several places.
Excellent condition. Rich sterling patina throughout. Cover well fit and shows matching # 1 with the base marked # 1. Handle secure. The interior centre fines lines from careful use, none deep enough to be felt.
For the discerning collector of the finest Georgian silver. Focused upon the most renowned maker of the day. A museum worthy 1828 Paul Storr sheep with banner covered entree.
