Patronage for Paul Storr

Though he held no official title, Paul Storr enjoyed patronage from many important and powerful figures throughout his career, including King George III. His first important commission came from the Duke of Portland, who requested a large gold font for his son's christening. Storr was 26 years old when he crafted the 245-troy ounce font, dated 1797. Just two years later, the British Admiralty commissioned the famed Battle of the Nile Cup, made as a presentation piece for Lord Nelson in 1799.
