Excellent
This soup tureen on stand was made for the 2nd Earl of Camden (1759-1840) in 1794. It formed part of an extensive silver dinner service made by Storr and was almost certainly used for the 2nd Earls tenure as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1795-1798. This commission represents the first highly important service that Storr produced and it was arguably from this that he was to get much of his subsequent patronage. Pratt went on to become Secretary of State for War and the Colonies from 1804-1805, and Lord President of the Council, 1807-1812. He became a Knight of the Garter in 1799 and was created Marquess Camden in 1812.
