This monumental sterling soup tureen by Paul Storr is a striking example of Georgian craftsmanship by the legendary silversmith. Executed in a refined neoclassical form, it features engraved armorials and reeded handles terminating in lion masks, with gadroon and dentil ornaments on the foot, body and cover. The commanding size, weight and design of the tureen result in a veritable Georgian silver masterpiece.

Storr was one of the defining voices of Georgian silver. His mastery of the neoclassical style placed him at the forefront of the silver craft for over four decades, and his work was in demand by the most affluent members of society, including members of the British Royal Family. Today, pieces by Storr are among the most coveted silverware with collectors and connoisseurs, and this tureen stands as a testament as to why Storr is counted among the greatest English silversmiths.
