This magnificent silver inkstand by the preeminent silversmith Paul Storr is a work of Georgian elegance. Exhibiting an exuberant design of flowers, scallop shells and rolling acanthus this magnificent set is comprised of three cut glass jars, serving as an inkwell, quill stand and pouncepot, all set upon an elevated pen tray. This set boasts even further rarity with the inclusion of a chamberstick and snuffer, set atop the inkwell. An engraved heraldic crest and marvelously ornate scrolled feet provide the finishing touches. Such an exclusive, beautifully-crafted piece would have been reserved for the most affluent client.

This set reflects the level of craftsmanship, superior quality, and attention to detail Paul Storr imparted to all of his works. He is considered by many to be the greatest silversmith of his era and was the principal silversmith of Rundell, Bridge & Rundell, the Royal Jewelers and Silversmiths to their majesties George III, George IV and their extended families. Without question, Storr produced some of the most exciting, exquisite and expensive silver ever made. His works are highly regarded and collected by museums and silver connoisseurs throughout the world.
