Posted in exhibitions by Editor on December 1, 2010

From the V&A:

Sacred Silver for London’s Huguenot Communities
Victoria & Albert Museum, London, 3 November 2010 — 2 October 2011

This display of sacred silver from Huguenot churches dating from 1717 to 1898 includes a Communion flagon presented for use in the French Hospital chapel, Victoria Park, Hackney in 1867. Made by Barnards, its sale is recorded in their London business archive recently saved for the V&A. The silver is lent by the French Hospital, Rochester, Kent which provides sheltered housing for elderly people of Huguenot descent.
