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.

Downturned fiddle handles, c1840 -- pointed shoulders, drop on the bowl back, reverse tipt, feathered script mono C R on front; 6" long, 7 Troy oz. One spoon has been replaced by a sterling example made or sold by Simons Bro. & Co. Condition of all 12 is near mint. The O'Daniel mark is a bit strange, with a period in place of an apostrophe between the O and the D. This same error is repeated in a different mark shown in Belden.

William Brady marked this piece, and also marked the location of his shop. Without the town name, it would be assumed that Brady worked in NYC, as shown in the literature. This ladle has a broad downturned fiddle handle, c1820-30 -- high pointed shoulders, and a unique semi-circle drop on the bowl back. The handle is reverse tipt, and the mono is a feathered script E L. It is 9-1/2" long with a 3" oval bowl, and is in excellent condition.

Marked A. S. DEVONDORF. Almond Smith Devendorf was a "merchant" in Galesburg from c1845-70. As such, he retailed these teaspoons to O. McBride. According to John McGrew, the bust in an inverted heart suggests that they were made in Connecticut. All 12 spoons are in mint condition -- probably never used. The handles are in the forward-tipt fiddle pattern, with flared shoulders. Length is 6-1/4". Weight is 7.25 T. oz.

Downturned fiddle handle, no shoulders, drop, shaded old English S on front; 5-1/2" long. Condition is excellent. Franciscus worked in Baltimore from 1810-18, and from 1819-40 in Lancaster, PA. These spoons are fully marked with a shield, the dominical letter A (which denotes 1815 as the year it was made), and the head of liberty. It is rare to find Franciscus silver so clearly associated with Baltimore, the city of his birth.

Interesting double-swell fiddle handles, unusual for midwest and southern silver; pointed shoulders, feathered script mono I S B on front; 5-7/8" in length. Excellent condition. Boultinghouse lists William and Archibald Cooper as forming their partnership in 1836 in Cincinnati, probably moving across the river to Louisville the next year. The mark on these spoons is terrific (see pic), not shown in Boultinghouse.
