Teaspoons (4) - Double Shell & Laurel Pattern - London 1815 by Paul Storr - 14.1cm long; 130g combined weight - BM/5238
This is a rare set of four silver teaspoons in double, shell & laurel pattern and bearing London hallmarks for Paul Storr.
The four teaspoons are in excellent condition and have a good feeling of high quality in the hand. They are engraved with lion crests to the front terminals are great examples of their type.
Double Shell & Laurel pattern is a rare variant of King's pattern and is considered to be one of the most prestigious and desirable of all British flatware designs. First made by Paul Storr circa 1810 for the royal goldsmiths Rundell, Bridge & Rundell, the pattern must have originally had an extraordinary premium price as very few services exist. This set of teaspoons is one of several pieces that we are currently offering, including a 12-person service, see photo links below.
