This extraordinary presentation silver soup tureen by Paul Storr is a striking example of Georgian craftsmanship by the legendary silversmith. Executed in a distinguished Neoclassical form, this tureen was created for Sir Richard Carr Glyn, 1st Baronet of Gaunts, a respected British banker and politician who served as both the Sheriff of London (1790) and the Lord Mayor of London (1798), and prominently features the arms of Sir Richard and his wife, Mary. The footed tureen features reeded handles terminating in lion masks, with refined gadroon and dentil ornaments on the foot, body and cover. Storr masterfully incorporates the Glyn crest, that of an eagle with an escallop in its beak, to serve as the finial. Both the cover and the body are engraved with matching armorials with the motto "Fidei Tenax" or "Firm to my Trust."

Paul Storr continues to be one of history's most important artisans, and resplendent works such as this tureen are difficult to obtain and highly collectible. This tureen stands as a testament as to why Storr is counted as one of the great Georgian silversmiths.
