Antique George III Sterling Silver Salver by Paul Storr 1811 19th Century
By Paul Storr
Located in London, GB
This is a wonderful English antique George III sterling silver 10 inch salver, by the world famous silversmith Paul Storr. It has clear hallmarks for London 1811 and the makers mark of Paul Storr. It is typical of his work with the raised gadrooned rim with anthemion at intervals, on four fabulous foliate bracket feet. The salver is engraved with a crest and motto and the underside is later engraved Charlotte J. Parke from C. J. Parke, March 1893' The centre is engraved with a crest above a motto 'True and Fast' and I have researched this crest: The Crest of Parke The crest as engraved upon this George III English Sterling Silver Footed Salver by Paul Storr hallmarked London 1811 is that of the family of Parke. It may be blazoned as follows: Crest: A stag’s head couped sable holding in the mouth a key or Motto: True and fast The family of Parke originally hailed from the County of Cumberland in the northeast of England1 later settling in the County of Dorset at Henbury House, Sturminster Marshal, near Wimborne. Given the evidence of the inscription found on the underside of the salver ‘Charlotte J. Parke from C. J. Parke, March 1893’ it was undoubtedly at one time in the possession of Charles Joseph Parke (died 9th March 1893) of Henbury House aforesaid and gifted to Charlotte Josephine Parke (baptised 4th January 1857 died 2nd January 1941) his third daughter by his wife, Ellen Mary Ethelston. I would venture the following hypothesis that the salver was bequeathed to Charlotte in her father’s will that was granted probate at London on the 20th May 1893. The ‘March 1893’ of the inscription acts as a remembrance of the month of the death of her father. It was noted that Charlotte’s father left an estate worth some £66,892, 19 shillings and one pence, a very considerable sum in the last decade of the 19th Century and even thereafter. Charlotte never married and was living at the time of her death at The Coppice, Sixpenny Handley in the County of Dorset. Her will was proved for probate at Llandudno on the 25th March 1941. She left an estate worth £18,866, 10 shillings and 4 pence. Again, a comfortable sum in 1941. See the photo of Henbury House, Sturminster Marshal, near Wimborne, Co. Dorset. The former seat of the Parke family. The house was destroyed by fire, the remains of which were demolished in the 1990's. There is no mistaking its unique quality and design, which is sure to make it a treasured piece by any discerning collector. Condition: In excellent condition with clear hallmarks and no dings, dents or signs of repair. Please see photos for confirmation. Dimensions in cm: Height 2 x Width 26.5 x Depth 26.5 Weight 0.69 kg Dimensions in inches: Height 1 inch x Width 10 inches x Depth 10 inches Weight 1.5 lbs Paul Storr born in London England in 1771, was to become one of the most talented silversmiths of the nineteenth century.

They may be blazoned as follows: Arms: Sable a lion rampant between three crosses formy fitchy argent Undoubtedly this salver was in the possession of a gentleman who was member of a family bearing the name of King. There are a number of variants of these armorial bearings being borne by King families. Very often the lion is of a different tincture but the field of the shield is invariably remains ‘sable’. Similar arms and crest were recorded by Sir Edward Bysshe, Clarenceux King of Arms in his Visitation of the County of Kent of 1663 to the family of King, of Bromley. The tinctures of both arms and crest of King, of Bromley were slightly different to those engraved upon this tureen in that the Visitation family’s arms were ‘Sable a lion rampant ermine between three crosses paty fitchy or’ 1 and the crest ‘A lion’s gamb erect and erased sable holding a cross paty fitchy or’(see illustration below). These arms and crest were granted by Sir Edward Walker, Garter King of Arms on the 20th February 1660 – 61; and yet another Kentish family of King, of Bellevue who were created Baronets within the Baronetage of Great Britain in 1792 bore for their arms ‘Sable a lion rampant erminois between three crosses paty fitchy or’. Their crest being the same as the family of King, of Bromley. There is no mistaking its unique quality and design, which is sure to make it a treasured piece by any discerning collector.
