Sorry, this item is out of stock.

This is a rare set of four George III silver salt spoons in the highly desirable double, shell & laurel pattern and made by the greatest English silversmith of the 19th century, Paul Storr.

Salt spoons in this pattern are rare, so finding a set of four is quite something! The four have crisp double-struck decoration and are free from any engravings (possibly been erased). The gilding to the bowls adds that extra touch of class. The appropriate small-work hallmarks are located to the underside of the bowls. A great set of Paul Storr salt spoons!

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 salt spoons is one of several pieces that we are currently offering, including a 12-person service, see photo links below.
