Benjamin Mead is cited as an Annapolis silversmith (and storekeeper, etc) by Whisker et al in "Maryland Clockmakers" and allied craftsmen. Quoted are excerpts from the Maryland Gazette of 9/11/1819, 11/11/19 and 1/11/21, which depict Mead's work. This spoon appears to be a modified coffin-end -- that is, the handle end is sliced lengthwise rather than clipped (see pic). It has square shoulders, is 8-5/8" long, and the mono is E M. Overall condition is excellent...

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.

Front-rib tablespoon with slashed drop, feathered script mono D H L on reverse; 7-3/4" long, excellent condition. Given the script mono, we have dated this piece at 1790, rather than an earlier period when Hanoverians were in style. It is probable that Sunshing was commissioned to make a complete set of front-rib spoons with the engraving in the style of the '90s. NOTE: Other Chinese, Colonial India and other non-American silver available; send email for list.

Coffin-end serving spoon, c1810-15 -- no shoulders, no drop, light reverse rib, feathered script mono G on front; 8-7/8" long. Condition is excellent, near mint. We bought this piece several months ago: Warner, should be a snap to find him; probably Delaware, right? Maybe Philadelphia -- maybe a stray southern maker. Well, maybe, but we haven't located him yet. Will keep looking.
