Paul Storr (1771 London – 4 March 1844 London) was an English gold- and silversmith, sculptor, and designer working in the Neoclassical style during the late eighteenth and early nineteentch centuries.[1][2] His works range from simple tableware to magnificent sculptural pieces made for royalty.[2]

Storr was apprenticed to Andrew Fogelberg who was of Swedish origin. On completion of his apprenticeship he started his own shop in 1796. In 1807, he began an association with Rundell and Bridge (later Rundell, Bridge and Rundell), a firm of royal goldsmiths, for whom he carried out many commissions ranging from simple tableware to the highly ornate and intricate work. In many cases he produced work following the firm's designs. Some of his own designs were inspired by ancient Roman silver, while others were in a Rococo style. He left the firm in 1819 and by 1822 had entered a partnership with John Mortimer, which was to last until 1838.

His Works

An example of his work is the cup made for the British admiral Lord Nelson to mark his victory at the Battle of the Nile.

There is a memorial to him at St Mary, Otley, Suffolk.[3]
