About

A superb 12 place silver canteen by Paul Storr. Double struck in the fiddle, thread and shell pattern with diamond and shell heel. London, 1813-1817. Most engraved with Identical crest to terminals, a few pieces with elegant scrolling initials. (see pictures for details) Comprising: 12 table forks, 12 tablespoons, 12 dessert forks, 12 dessert spoons and 1 basting spoon, all by Paul Storr. All pieces are hallmarked for London by Paul Storr. The dates are 1813 (S), 1814 (T), 1815 (U) 1816 (a) & 1817 (b) All the pieces are in very good condition, of excellent gauge and wonderful patina. Some rubbing to the marks. Paul Storr is considered the greatest silversmith of the 19th century, and as such his work is highly sought-after and therefore very rare to find. Well proportioned and superbly made, this canteen features as one of the earliest examples of a fiddle thread and shell pattern canteen. A delightful addition to any collection. Originating in about 1810, the fiddle thread and shell pattern has proved a very popular fiddle pattern and it is still being produced today. Aside from the slight variations found from individual makers die-stamps, there are three design variants: the most common diamond heel; the quite scarce Union shell heel; the rare thread heel. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a fantastic 12 place setting canteen by Paul Storr - the most important silversmith of the 19th century.
