This silver soup tureen, complete with matching cover, was crafted by the highly important Georgian silversmith Paul Storr. It is a striking example of the neoclassical style that pervaded late Georgian design and that Storr helped to define. Each element of the tureen is flawlessly executed and balanced, from the reeded handles terminating in lion masks to the refined gadrooning, fluting and bead and reel motifs enveloping the cover and body. The arms engraved on the side are those of Baron Monson, a noble title in the Peerage of Great Britain, first created in 18th century for Sir John Monson, 5th Baronet. The crest displays the motto “Prest pour mon pais,” meaning “Ready for my country.”

Beginning his silversmithing career at an early age, Paul Storr apprenticed with Swedish-born smith Andrew Fogleberg at only 14. He entered his first mark in 1792, and went on to join the famed firm of Rundell, Bridge and Rundell in 1806 — the same year they obtained the Royal Warrant. His innovative decorative motifs and meticulous finishes earned him the patronage of some of the most powerful figures of the period, including King George III. Paul Storr's legacy is a remarkable body of work with far-reaching influences, and this tureen is a testament to this silversmith's tremendous skill.
