Solomon Hougham was Charles Hougham's brother and worked with him until Charles died in 1793. Solomon then entered his own mark. Solomon Hougham’s sugar tongs date from 1793 to 1817, so we would expect to see the full range of silver sugar tongs of this period from him. In looking at his sugar tongs, we see the same pattern as with all makers of this time. The earlier sugar tongs are all bright cut, gradually changing until all the later tongs are plain.
