Guest Book
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.
