Antique Silver George III Tureen William Bennett 1808 Birchall and Hayne 19th C

Antique Silver George III Tureen William Bennett 1808 Birchall and Hayne 19th C

This is a beautiful antique English George III sterling silver tureen and lid, with hallmarks for London 1808 and the makers mark WB for William Bennett. The tureen is beautiful in its simplicity. There is an engraved crest and a fabulous coat of arms which I have had researched: The Marital Arms of Families of Birchall and Hayne   The arms as engraved upon this George III English Sterling Silver Tureen by William Bennett hallmarked London 1808 are those of Birchall impaling Hayne.  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.  These armorial bearings may be blazoned as follows: Arms: (on the dexter)                        Argent on a chevron between three cross crosslets fitchy sable as many fleurs de lis of the first (for Birchall) (on the sinister)                       Or on a fess gules three bezants in chief a greyhound courant proper (for Hayne) Crest:                                       A lion rampant azure supporting a tree vert (for Birchall) Upon the balance of probability and without any evidence to the contrary these armorial bearings commemorate the marriage of an unnamed gentleman of the Birchall family who hailed from the Counties of Chester and Stafford to an unnamed daughter of a family of the Hayne family around the date of the manufacture and hallmarking of this particular piece.  It is supposed that the Birchalls took their name from Birchill in the County of Cheshire this being the original spelling of the name. The style of the engraving of both arms and crest are contemporary with the date cited.  It is a lovely piece which would be appreciated by both collectors and those who would like to use it at their next dinner party. Condition: In excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair. Please see photos for confirmation.

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.
