Batty Storr (1710-1793) was a well-established clockmaker and watchmaker based at Minster Gates in York. York, with its burgeoning wool trade, was not only the great commercial centre of the North, but had also developed into the principal centre of culture to rival London.
A further example, also by Storr, may be seen in the entrance hall of the Treasurer’s House in York, which houses the celebrated collection of Frank Green, given by him in its entirety to the National Trust in 1930. A further similar example with an embricated cistern cover was formerly with this firm (see Ronald Phillips Ltd., 2005 catalogue, pp. 56 & 57, illus). Few examples of Storr’s work have survived, making this example particularly rare.
