If Hester Bateman was “the Queen of English Silver” then Paul Storr should probably be designated as the King.
Paul Storr appeared on the scene somewhat later than Hester Bateman but made an equally powerful and important contribution to the history of silver in this country. Paul Storr silver items are today highly sought after and prized amongst antique silver collectors and enthusiasts.
Paul Storr was an English silversmith working in the Neoclassical style during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. His work ranges from simple day-to-day tableware through to magnificent pieces commissioned for royalty and members of the aristocracy. Paul Storr produced much of the silver that was purchased by George III and George IV.

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).

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.
