Auction Gallery of the Palm Beaches Inc, based in Florida, will hold its annual Fall auction on the evening of Monday, October 24.
The auction will feature an Important English 18th and Early 19th century silver collection.
This local silver collection was collected over the past 40 years and is most notable for a selection of pieces by England's most important and collectible silversmiths, Paul De Lamarie, Paul Storr, and Hester Bateman.
This auction will be the gallery's best silver collection to date and the most important collection to come across the block in Florida.
The De Lamarie pieces are the most prized works of English silver makers. Pieces by him are rare and when available are sought after by collectors.
The collection features three pieces by the silversmith master including a George II mug dated 1733, a George II snuffer tray from 1734, and a sublime George I brandy warmer dated 1719.
The rarity of De Lamarie pieces is well known amongst silver collectors.
The quality of pieces by Paul Storr is well represented including a very fine George II coffee pot, dated 1817, with serpent and mask terminals; a set of four sterling silver entrée dishes and covers from 1827, and a very fine silver basket, dated 1822.
The best Storr lot is a George III silver gilt cup and cover dated 1808 of campana form with chased laurel leaf bands and reeded handles ending in Bacchus masks. The piece at 14 ½" high is the largest and most impressive Storr piece ever offered by the gallery.
