Exceptional in both rarity and size, this hot water kettle by Paul Storr is a masterpiece of Late Georgian silver. From the coronet finial and palmette border to the lion paw feet and dolphin spout, the entire work is lavishly cast and chased with an incredible level of precision. Every inch of this monumental kettle’s design, including its large size and weight, serves as proof of Storr’s status as a master silversmith. 

The coat of arms and crest of Thomas, 3rd Baron Foley, are engraved prominently on this kettle. Foley was a Whig politician who served William IV in several government posts, including Captain of the Honorable Corps of Gentlemen Pensioners (the King’s bodyguards) and the Privy Council (the King’s advisors). The motto “Ut Prosim” or “That I May Be of Use” is engraved within the coat of arms.

Without question, Paul Storr is among history’s finest smiths, revered for perfecting the works, styles and designs of the Regency period. Though he held no formal title, Storr enjoyed patronage from the most important and powerful figures of the period, including King George III and the Prince of Wales, the future King George IV. He imparted a level of craftsmanship and superior quality that has seldom been seen since. Today, his creations are highly regarded and collected by museums and silver connoisseurs around the world.
