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.

No maker's mark, but it's safe to assume that Gebelein was responsible for this piece, c1920. It is, of course, marked STERLING. The sheaf and sickle design is quite similar to the original of 100 years earlier, but differs somewhat in the details. This ladle is 13-3/4" long and weighs 6-1/2 Troy oz. It has high square shoulders, with double pouring lips on the bowl. It has never been engraved. Condition is minty. Repro or not, this is an imposing piece of silver.

Long tapering handle, light reverse rib, feathered script mono RTVL on front; 7-5/8" long. Condition is near-mint. This is the same mark used by John's father, Saunders. The only way to identify the maker is to identify the approximate year it was made. This piece was made no earlier than 1805-10. By then, Saunders was dead. Incidentally, these small ladles, both coffin-end and late 18thC, were made almost entirely in RI, and most notably in Providence.

One spoon has been replaced by a sterling example made or sold by Simons Bro.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.
