Georgian silver has become extremely collectable in recent years. Sugar tongs are still relatively inexpensive and offer the collector some stunning examples of craftsmanship of the eighteenth century.
Graham Hodges was born in Cornwall in 1958 and educated in Tiverton Grammar School before spending several years at sea in the merchant navy. He has been a collector of Georgian silver sugar tongs for many years and has a vast collection. This book is the culmination of several years study of the subject and draws together knowledge and experience that can only be obtained from direct examination of many pairs of sugar tongs. Graham runs a website (www.silversugartongs.com) that is referred to by collectors, not just of sugar tongs, but of any silver of the Georgian era. He is married with a family of four children who are now making their own way in the world. This gives him time to dedicate to further research of this fascinating subject, although he still works full time as a director in the business outsourcing industry. Graham has lived in Wiltshire for many years.
