Paul Storr Regency Salver with Armorial, 1813
Salver - Circular with Gadroon Mount - London 1813 by Paul Storr - 30.5cm diameter; 1005g - GA/2688
This is a magnificent 12" silver salver made by the most important English silversmith of the 19th century at the height of his powers. During the Regency period, Paul Storr was supplying the royal goldsmiths Rundell, Bridge & Rundell with the finest and most magnificent pieces of silverware. This salver is indicative of the very highest quality that he was producing and the sumptuous engraved armorial to the centre is testament to the patronage the firm was enjoying.
This circular tray stands on four acanthus leaf feet and is mounted to the rim with a gadroon border. It has a good hefty weight and is in superb condition with crisp engraving, bold decoration and a fine antique patina.
