Truly exceptional examples of Georgian silver, these serving dishes by London silversmith Paul Storr are fashioned in the neoclassical style. Embowed arms wielding battle axes serve as the lids’ handles, a motif that is echoed in the armorial crests engraved on each lid. Elegant egg and dart trim is the only other embellishment included on their minimal, elongated octagonal forms.

Having mastered the neoclassical aesthetic in silver early in his career, Paul Storr continued to produced pieces within that style until his retirement, while also excelling in the more extravagant Rococo designs popular during the Regency period. These covered dishes are an exceptional example of his earlier neoclassical style, displaying an elegant silhouette enhanced by understated decoration.
