Pinched-waist fiddle handle, pointed shoulders, script mono M A on front; 8-1/2" long, a bit over 1 T oz. Condition is excellent. Marked with Whiting lion, COIN and by the retailer, Bassett & Elliott. The pinched-wast fiddle originated in the Midwest, probably with the Kinsey boys or Duhme, yet examples by Whiting are fairly common. Why? One suggestion is that Whiting's manufacturing and sales organization could out-compete the local companies.

Pinched-waist fiddle handle, pointed shoulders, script mono M L J on front; 5-7/8" in length. Condition is excellent, extended bowl tip unworn. Pinched-waist fiddles are not common in VA; Wright's proximity to TN & KY, where the style is quite common, probably had an influence here. See Hollan's "Virginia Silversmiths" for a full discussion of Wright and his work.

Peabody's spoons are distinctive in design --slim oval-end downturned fiddle handles -- nothing quite like them by other makers. This piece has flared shoulders and a short reverse rib. The mono is EB in a feathered script. Length is 5-3/8". Condition is near-mint. This is probably the same John Peabody who worked earlier in Fayetteville, NC. The spoons pictured on p. 125 of "Silversmiths of NC" are not at all similar in design to this piece.
