Click here for details of this gorgeous antique silver teapot by one of the greatest silversmiths of the nineteenth century. His pieces can be found in the finest palaces and stately homes in Europe and throughout the world!
Paul Storr was the favourite silversmith of both George 111 and George 1V.
It was Storr's association with Philip Rundell of the outstanding silver firm of Rundell, Bridge and Rundell that bought his talents to prominence. Storr was the most brilliant silversmith of his time, and it was that supreme competence which attracted Rundell's firm. He worked for the firm from 1807 to 1819, but eventually set up on his own as he felt that his flair was not being expressed in the way he wished.
After working alone for a short period, Paul Storr realised that he needed a retail outlet and in 1822 teamed up with John Mortimer at an establishment in New Bond Street.

We have in the past posted advice about protecting your antique silver collection both from burglars and also in terms of the best way of cleaning and storing it.
However, we feel it appropriate to mention a relatively new product that has come onto the market called Smartwater. This is a forensic fluid made up of microscopic particles that create a unique identification code when used to mark valuable property.
Well, well with all the talk of investment, potential banking crashes and second class currencies it might be worth turning our attention back to silver as a safe place to lodge money.
