Soup Plates (pair) - Circular with Gadroon Mounts - London 1829 by Paul Storr - 29cm diameter; 1630g combined weight - HK/2629

As one would expect from Paul Storr, these are a terrific pair of Georgian silver soup plates.

The plates are shaped-circular in form with a bold gadroon edge and are engraved to the border with a crest depicting a stag rampant couped. They have a deep well to the centre and would originally been part of a larger suite of silver soup plates. Today they would not only be practical as soup dishes, but also ideal as vegetable serving dishes.

The dishes have a good weight and are hallmarked to the outside with Paul Storr hallmarks, which are a little rubbed, and "Storr & Mortimer" to the underside. They are in excellent condition with the usual knife scratch marks to the centre.
