Teaspoon by John Peabody, Nashville, Tenn.
Please refer to our stock # 695 when inquiring.
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.
