    Inherited. Believe to have been purchased from Brock & Co., Los Angeles in the 1930's. Brock & Co. was regarded as the Tiffany of the West. Would these be considered demitasse spoons? I don't think they are silver plate because from what I've read I don't think Brock did silver plate flatware. Anyone have any knowledge of Brock silver? Thanks.

      Hi Rickdrake -

      I work at a charitable resale shop in Arlington Heights, IL and oddly enough we have recently received 7 and 6 pate spreaders (?) that look to have the same pattern. Ours are marked C D Peacock, which was the Tiffany's of Chicago during the late 1800s and into the mid 1900s. Peacock was never a silversmith, but sold high-end pieces made by premier manufacturers. I'm convinced a silversmith made these (and yours) for elite jewelers, who then engraved and marked the pieces with their name. I am trying to determine the name of the manufacturer, and will let you know if I find anything. Thanks for posting and including the 1930s date - that may help!

      terrys. You are absolutely correct! I revisited the marks and found the spoons were produced by Whiting Manufacturing of Attleboro, Mass. Whiting was founded in 1866 and was regarded as one of the late 19th century's premier producers of sterling silver flatware. These particular spoons were produced in 1908 or 1909 and are known apparently as 'citrus' spoons. They are in the 'Madam Jumel' pattern. Brock & Co in Los Angeles must have been a Whiting retailer and stamped their name on the flatware. Perhaps Brock did the monogramming? Thank you so much for your intelligent response!

      Hi rickdrake. Checked out your information and you are spot on! Thanks so much for your quick response. We will be listing these pieces on our eBay site later today - we are community_threads_resale. Best wishes!
