Description & Technical information

This is a wonderful example of a George III Soup Tureen made by Paul Storr who was certainly the finest 19th century silversmith and this can be seen in the overall quality of the piece.

The tureen has been raised on rectangular pads with acanthus feet supporting a reeded body with lion-headed reeded handles and gadrooned rim surmounted by a conforming domed lid.

The arms of Henry William Ferdinand Bolckow (1806-78) originally of Varchow, Mecklenburg and naturalized British by Act of Parliament, 1841.
