The Salt Cellars are Boat shaped in form and stand on an oval pedestal foot. The rim and loop handles are decorated with reeding and the front of the main body is engraved with a contemporary Crest. The interior of the bowl is finely gilded and both are very well marked in the foot. Both pieces are in excellent condition and are of the finest quality, as would be expected from these workshops.



Paul Storr was only in partnership with one other silversmith, this being William Frisbee, for eight months from May 1792 until January 1793. Their output must have been small, during this period, as silver which bears their mark, in partnership, is extremely scarce. Items by this partnership are very desirable, and sought after, to collectors of the famous Paul Storr, as it charts the starting point in his outstanding career, which saw him attain the title of the most famous English silversmith of the 19th century.
