A George III silver sugar vase by Thomas Heming, London 1769. Thomas Heming was apprenticed to Peter Archambo, the Huguenot goldsmith, and this French influence on his work is clearly seen in the fine rococo Sugar Vase with its freely modelled body. Originally it was probably en suite with tea boxes.
