Paul Storr (1771-1844) Sterling Silver Fruit Bowl

hallmarked London, 1799-1800, the hemispherical bowl with gadrooned rim and decorated with repousse shells, scrolls and flowers centering a lobed cartouche, raised on a domed circular pedestal foot en suite.
h. 5-3/4", dia. 9-3/8"; 27.59 t. oz.


In generally good condition. There is a shallow compression dent where the pedestal meets the bowl, causing the rim bowl to sit about two degrees out of vertical and causing a slight "wobble" at the foot, both issues easily reparable. Otherwise no dents, breaks or repairs noted. Light wear to the high relief of the decoration. Hallmarked (on the body, near the rim) with: 1) the sterling lion passant; 2) the London crowned leopard's head; 3) the date letter "D" for 1799-1800; 4) the George III bust duty mark; and 5) the "PS" maker's mark of Paul Storr. Marks well-rubbed but legible.
