Learn about Paul Storr

Paul Storr was the most prolific of the 19th century silversmiths, and was a master of the heavy neo-classical styles. He went into business for himself after he completed his apprenticeship in 1796, and from 1807 was associated with the silversmithing firm of Rundell & Bridge, for whom he carried out many commissions. He left Rundell & Bridge in 1819 and after a few years went into partnership with John Mortimer, trading as Storr & Mortimer which lasted until he retired in 1838 at the age of 68. His workshop produced enormous quantities of silver and silver gilt in designs so heavy and robust that many objects have survived in excellent condition. His patrons included both George II and the Prince Regent and his wares were highly sought after and remain so today.
