Footnote: Paul Storr was England's most celebrated silversmith during the first half of the nineteenth century and his pieces historically and currently adorn Royal palaces and the finest stately homes throughout Europe and the world. The distinctive shape and the unusual handle in this example have been features of many teapots marked by Storr, including an example of the same age which is on display in the Huntington Museum of Art, Huntington, West Virginia, USA.
