Teaspoon with oval-end fiddle handle, flared shoulders, feathered script mono E B on front; 5-3/8" long, excellent condition. Peabody worked first in Fayetteville, NC, beginning in 1823, and by 1836, according to B. Caldwell's "Silversmiths in Tennessee," he was working in Nashville. The shape of Peabody's fiddle is interesting -- perhaps not unique, but well formed, and an interesting shape to hold and contemplate.

Set of 3 teaspoons marked Tryner in arc cartouche -- pinched-waist fiddle handle, pointed shoulders, feathered script L H on front, 5-3/4" long.

All 3 spoons are in excellent condition, extended bowl tips unworn.

Mustard ladle, c1810-20 -- This is a 4-3/4"-long piece with an extraordinarily long (2-1/2") fiddle; it has square shoulders and a tiny (3/4") oval bowl. Mono, as shown, is T E C in feathered script. One would think that a smith, or a partnership of smithies, with a 3-letter mark would be easy to find. Not so. We went thru the B's in Kovel and other silver books to no avail. Then we did the same with the A's, thinking it might be a 3-person partnership. Still no luck. Shame, that...

Made by Sigourney & Hitchcock, Watertown, NY, for the Jeff. Co. Agl. Soc. (see pix). Watertown is the center of Jefferson County in upstate NY. Description of the spoons is as follows: forward-tipt fiddle handles, flared shoulders, 6" in length. Condition is very good - a few bowl dings and very little wear. Agricultural premium silver is always interesting as an artifact of 19thC rural American history.

Set of 6 forward-tipt fiddle-handled teaspoons with flared shoulders. Feathered script mono J.L.C. on front; 5-7/8" long, excellent condition. NOTE: In putting together the book on North Carolina silversmiths, Cutten assumed that the N.C. following the Hanna mark referred to North Carolina, and that silver found with the mark was made by an unidentified NC smith. Not until some years later did the truth out...
