Paul Storr (1771-1844) stands as one of the most renowned and celebrated silversmiths in the history of English silver craftsmanship. Not much is known for certain about Storr’s apprenticeship other than the fact that he was formally apprenticed to vintner William Rock and possibly informally apprenticed to silversmith Andrew Fogelberg (whom, as a foreigner was not a member of the guild). Early on, Storr demonstrated remarkable talent and quickly gained recognition for his exceptional skills.

In 1792, Paul Storr became a freeman of the Goldsmiths' Company, marking the beginning of a prolific career that would span over five decades. Storr's work reflected the Regency and Georgian design aesthetics, characterized by the Neoclassical and ornate styles of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was known for his superb mastery of various techniques, including casting, chasing, and engraving, which he employed to create intricately detailed silver pieces.

Storr's clientele included British aristocracy, royalty, and prominent figures of the time, such as the Prince of Wales, the Duke of York, and the Duke of Northumberland. His craftsmanship was highly sought after, and he became the principal silversmith for Rundell, Bridge & Rundell, a prestigious London firm that supplied luxury goods to the Royal Family.

Among his most famous works are his silver dinner services, serving pieces, and grand presentation pieces, often bearing his signature style. The legacy of Paul Storr's artistry endures today, with his pieces held in the collections of prestigious museums and treasured by collectors worldwide. His contribution to the world of silver craftsmanship remains a testament to his unparalleled skill and artistry.
