PAUL STORR. An exceptional & very unusual pair of George III Salt Cellars made in London in 1806 by Paul Storr.


The Salts are modelled in a design which we had not previously seen coming from the workshops of Paul Storr. Both stand on a circular pedestal foot which is decorated with a wide lobed band. The plain circular baluster main body rises to a very unusual everted rim decorated with lobing interspersed with Rococo raying shells flanked by acanthus foliage. The interiors display deep original gilding and the front of the main body is engraved with a wheat sheaf Crest. Both Salt Cellars are in excellent condition, are very well marked and are of a good weight. The Salts come with a fine pair of silver gilt fiddle, thread and shell Salt Spoons, double struck, which were also made in London in 1806 by the flatware makers, William Eley & William Fearn. The spoons are engraved with the same Crest as seen on the Salts and we are sure that they have been together all over the years.

Height: 2.1 inches, 5.25 cm.

Diameter at the rim: 4.45 inches, 11.13cm.

Weight: 11.5oz the pair.

Length of the spoons: 4.25 inches, 10.63cm.
