A pair of silver-gilt sugar vases and covers, by Robert Garrard, London, 1844.

In 1844 Queen Victoria and Prince Albert paid a three day visit to Burghley.

There was a great programme of refurbishment prior to the Royal visit and several early silver-gilt services were increased in number.

The date of these elegant sugar vases suggests that they were also bought with the Royal visit in mind.
