The work of Peter Archambo is highly desirable. He was apprentice to Jacob Margas and was of Huguenot descent. His work was of considerable importance at this date and was in the circle of De Lamerie and Crespin. His most important patron was almost certainly George Booth, 2nd Earl of Warrington, for whom Archambo worked extensively, as witnessed by the contents of the Foley Grey sale of 1921 at Christie's which included the remarkable Wine Cistern of 1728, a Wine Cistern of 1729 and six unusual sconces of 1730, as well as much dinner plate, salvers, sauceboats and baskets.
