Paul Storr Teapot, 1792/3






Details

This is a very rare example from the early years of Paul Storr's output as a master silversmith.

 

Paul Storr gained his freedom as a silversmith in May 1792 following his apprenticeship to Andrew Fogelberg. He had a short-lived (6 month) partnership with William Frisbee, before entering his own mark on January 12th 1793. This teapot was therefore made in the first months of working on his own account between January and May 1793 and as such lays claim to be an important piece in the history of England's most important 19th century silversmith.

 

The teapot has the standard oval form of the late 18th century, has a well-made flush hinge and unlike the vast majority of his productions is entirely plain in appearance. It is fitted with a wooden handle and matching finial. The hallmarks to the underside are very clear and the condition is excellent throughout.
