This remarkable pair of silver dessert compotes embodies the timeless genius of master silversmith Paul Storr. Bearing the engraved crest, marital arms and motto, “Vernon Semper Viret,” of George Vernon, 1st Baron Vernon, and his wife, these impeccable stands exhibit the stately Neoclassical style. Once part of the esteemed Charsky collection, they are cast in the ancient kylix form, and are beautifully crafted, from the flared rim to the majestic lion’s paw feet.
