Antique English Regency Sterling Silver Four Bottle Cruet Paul Storr 1820 19th C

Antique English Regency Sterling Silver Four Bottle Cruet Paul Storr 1820 19th C

A rare, complete George III antique silver cruet set from Paul Storr, the world-renowned artisan silversmith. The set comprises a beautifully decorative silver cruet stand holding four exquisite condiment bottles traditionally for chili, soy, cayenne and ketchup. The antique silver cruet stand has gadrooned edging, embellished at the corners with leaf and shell motifs. While the ring holder echoes this detailing, it also features two symmetrical fish, their mouths open to a stream of silver water pouring from a shell which crests the ring’s apex. The bottle-holders are adorned with four silver lions, and we see the lion’s splayed paws as the feet of the stand. This rare and therefore highly desirable Regency silver cruet set by Paul Storr carries the hallmarks for London 1820 and is cleared marked with ‘PS’, the mark of Paul Storr (for more on Paul Storr, see below). This four bottle antique cruet set was produced at the end of the reign of King George III (1760–1820) who was succeeded by his eldest son, King George IV (1820–1830). In excellent condition, the hallmarks on this silver condiment set are clear and there are no signs of repair or any dings or dents to the silverwork, as shown by the photographs above. More About Paul Storr Paul Storr (London, 1770–1844) became one of the most lauded silversmiths and goldsmiths of his era. His exquisite pieces were bought by the royal family and others of high social standing, and today, his silverwork can be found in royal palaces, stately homes and museums not just in the United Kingdom, but across the world. This desirable George III antique silver cruet was produced in 1820, when Storr had left the silversmiths and goldsmiths Rundell, Bridge and Rundell in the City of London and was enjoying a period of independence and artistic freedom. At this time, Storr was established as a craftsman of exceptional talent and patronage. In 1822 he partnered with John Mortimer in a new venture, Storr and Mortimer; he continued with Mortimer until his retirement in 1838.

Antique Silver Gilt Chalice Cup by Paul de Lamerie 1745 18th C

Antique Silver Gilt Chalice Cup by Paul de Lamerie 1745 18th C

This exquisite antique silver gilt chalice cup bears the makers mark of the renowned silversmith Paul de Lamerie and hallmarks for London 1745. This George II antique silver chalice has a domed foot and the tall stem with plain beaded knop rises to the bowl which is divided by a wide band. Bearing the mark P.L. in script under a crown over a pellet, this mark was first entered in 1739. The restrained form shown by this wonderful antique silver chalice illustrates that Paul de Lamerie, at the end of his working life, reverted to simple designs, in this case very similar to his earliest chalice for Milton Cleveden. This antique silver gilt chalice cup is in excellent condition with the makers mark showing some signs of rubbing. More About Paul de Lamerie (1688 - 1751) The Victoria and Albert Museum describes Paul de Lamerie as the ‘greatest silversmith working in England in the 18th century’. De Lamerie was born in Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands and was the son of a minor French nobleman. His Huguenot parents left France following the Edict of Fontainebleau in 1685 and his father became an officer in the army of William III of Orange and subsequently moved to London in 1689 during the Glorious Revolution. De Lamerie became an apprentice to a goldsmith of Huguenot origin in 1703 and eventually opened his own workshop in 1713 and became goldsmith to George I in 1716. He worked in partnership with Ellis Gamble who had formerly been the apprentice master of William Hogarth between 1723 and 1728. De Lamerie’s early work was in simple Queen Anne styles following classical French models, but from about 1730 he became noted for his elaborate Rococo style, particularly for the richly-decorated works of an unidentified craftsman, the Maynard Master. He clientele included the Tsarinas Anna and Catherine, Count Aleksey Bobrinsky, Sir Robert Walpole, the Earl of Ilchester, The Earl of Thanet, Viscount Tyrconnel, the Duke of Bedford and other members of the English upper classes. He also did work for John V of Portugal which included a huge silver bathtub lost in the 1755 Lisbon earthquake.

Antique Regency Old Sheffield Silver Plated Tray C 1820 with Cavendo Tutus Crest

Antique Regency Old Sheffield Silver Plated Tray C 1820 with Cavendo Tutus Crest

This is a magnificent and very large antique Regency English Old Sheffield silver plated tray, circa 1820 in date. This Old Sheffield tray is of rectangular shape and features a deep-set border which is richly decorated with exquisite scalloped shells, acanthus leaves and c scrolls, typical of the Regency period. The tray has two elegant and large handles, one to each end, with matching acanthus leaves and c scrolls decoration. The body of the tray is finely chased with floral and foliate decoration against a textured background. The centre of the tray has a family crest and the Latin motto: 'Cavendo Tutus' which translates as "Look before you leap", this motto belonged to Chatsworth House, the home of the Duke of Devonshire. I have had the crest researched:   The Marital Arms of Cruikshank and Purrier    The armorial bearings as engraved upon this Regency Old Sheffield Plate TwoHandled Tray dating to circa 1820 are those of the family of Cruikshank impaling Purrier.  These armorial bearings denote the marshalling of a marital coat showing on the dexter (the heraldic right on the left as you view the piece) the arms of the husband and on the sinister (the heraldic left on the right as you view it) the arms of the wife.  They may be blazoned as follows:    Arms:    (on the dexter) Argent three boars’ heads couped sable within a bordure engrailed of the second  (for Cruikshank)     (on the sinister) Argent a chevron vert between in chief two pears of the last and in base on a mount a pear tree proper fructed or a chief ermines (for Purrier)    Crest: A dexter hand in armour grasping a dagger in pale proper (for Cruikshank)    Motto: Cavendo tutus [Safe by being cautious] (for Cruikshank)       These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of Patrick Cruikshank of Glenskinno in the County of Forfar and of Richmond in the West Indies1 (born 17th March 1800 died 1875) and Charlotte Maria Purrier (baptised 26th April 1806 died 1886).  Patrick and Charlotte were married on the 16th February 1832 at the Parish Church of St Marylebone, Marylebone in the County of Middlesex.2  Patrick was the eldest son of James Cruikshank of Langley Park in the County of Forfar and his wife, Margaret Helen Gerard, the daughter of The Reverend Alex Gerard, DD, of King’s College, Aberdeen; whilst Charlotte was the daughter of John Vincent Purrier, of Kingston upon Thames in the County of Surrey3 and his wife, Charlotte Maria Thomas.         The beauty, quality and craftsmanship of this tray, make it truly second to none. Condition: In excellent condition with no dings, dents or signs of repair and only minor signs of wear commensurate with age and use. Please see photos for confirmation.

Some Guidelines on Shopping For Antique, Vintage and Second-Hand Silver Selecting antique and second-hand silver is a enormous subject which encompasses craftsmanship by some of the finest master goldsmiths who were world renowned designers in their own right down to the most utilitarian and ordinary of machine-made ordinary domestic products. In considering buying this silver plated tray we are pleased to offer a few guidelines that could help you make your mind up on just what is most useful for you. Highly cherished for hundreds and hundreds of years, silver has distinct properties that have made it both enchanting and collectible and as a consequence people have amassed and made use of it in an assortment of different forms. There is a large volume of antique, vintage and second-hand silver available on the market today. So how do you know what to pick out? The principal rule of thumb is that one should spend money on what you actually like. Give some focus to the reasons why you like this silver plated tray and if it appeals to your artistic sense then why wait? Professionals always say that you should go after the very best you can afford, and this does not inevitably mean the earliest or indeed the largest. Do make the effort to discover the makers and the designs that charm you and it will help you identify the direction you need to go to build up a splendid silver collection. If you take pleasure in a particular piece of silver such as this silver plated tray you will want to display it to friends and family and your pleasure will translate to them too. A key question is the condition of a silver item and how much restoration work has occurred. When selecting silver antiques that are over 200 years old they will probably have what is called a 'patina' which is a combination of the colour and the wear. You cannot expect an old silver piece to appear as if it just came from the workshop - if it actually does then it has potentially been heavily restored which is not ideal for an item of antique silver. Don't forget that in the silver antiques world a small amount of restoration is appropriate where a small ding or dent may be carefully eliminated. But be mindful of over plating, lead or silver solder, repaired seams, holes, erased inscriptions, patches and later enhancements or decorations. All of these are unacceptable for a piece of great antique silver. The good news is that here at Regent Antiques we are vigilant and offer only the finest unblemished silver pieces and where things like re-plating has taken place we will tell you. We always supply ample snapshots of our silver products so you can see fully what condition they are in. Do take a few seconds to look at the photos for this silver plated tray to assure yourself of its condition. If you have any issues about it you are always very welcome to call or email us. We will be delighted to put your mind at rest about the condition of this silver plated tray. Bear in mind that silver tarnishes and you will have to look after it by polishing it relatively frequently. It's a wise course of action to clean it with a long term polish and then then try to display it in a relatively airtight cupboard if you can. This will keep it gleaming for the longest possible time. If you look after it well this silver plated tray will basically last forever.
