This is a wonderful English antique George III sterling silver soup tureen  by the world famous and celebrated silversmith...

This is a wonderful English antique George III sterling silver soup tureen  by the world famous and celebrated silversmith Paul Storr.

It has hallmarks for London 1804, the makers mark of Paul Storr on each part and it bears a stunning coat of arms over a coronet which I have had researched:
 

The Crests of Parkyns, Baron Rancliffe


The crests as engraved upon this George III English Sterling Silver Tureen by Paul Storr hallmarked London 1804 are those borne by Parkyns, Baron Rancliffe. They may be blazoned as follows:

Crests:

(Dexter) Out of a ducal coronet or a demi-eagle displayed azure billety of the first each billet charged with an ermine spot sable (for Parkyns)

(Sinister) Out of a ducal coronet or a demi-swan rousant proper collared and lined (……?) holding the beak (……?) (for possibly Isham)

The crests are ensigned with a baron’s coronet. Given the date of hallmarking of this tureen it was undoubtedly in the possession of George Augustus Henry Anne Parkyns (born 10th June 1785 died 1st November 1850), the 2nd Baron Rancliffe and 4th Baronet of Bunny in the County of Nottinghamshire.  George was the only son of Thomas Boothby Parkyns, 1st Baron Rancliffe and his wife, Elizabeth Anne James. George married Lady Elizabeth Mary Theresa Forbes (born 1786 died 1852), the eldest daughter of George Forbes, 6th Earl of Granard and his wife, Lady Selina Frances Rawdon, the youngest daughter of John Rawdon, the 1st Earl of Moira in October 1807. George served as an officer in both the 10th Light Dragoons and the 15th Light Dragoons and achieved the rank of Lieutenant. He was placed on half pay in that rank until it was stopped in 1834. George also served as an equerry to his godfather the Prince of Wales. As his family’s peerage was one in the Peerage of Ireland it allowed him to sit in the British House of Commons as a Member of Parliament within a period of twenty-four years of the following seats: Minehead (1806 – 07) and Nottingham (1812 – 29 and 1826 – 30). Upon George’s death in 1850, the Irish Barony of Rancliffe fell into extinction for the want of a male heir. The family baronetcy of Bunny however was inherited by his first cousin, Thomas George Augustus Parkyns, a grandson of the 3rd baronet.
 

The tureen of striking  circular form with a decorative reeded rim and elegant reeded scroll handles with lion masques. The dome cover has a stunning ornate  heart pendant foliate handle and is engraved with the crest.  It is raised on a circular plinth base with beautiful reeded decoration. 

Please see picture of George Augustus Henry Anne Parkyns and photo of his home, Bunny Hall, which was built circa 1725.

Paul Storr -
born in London England in 1771, was to become one of the most talented silversmiths 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).
