Hmm.  I would be happy to correspond with Zanderpitt on this issue.  I did find a 2010 german-language blog with a replica attributed to Zanderpitt that had the correct orientation.  Are your spoons are stamped/engraved "ZP" which Zanderpitt uses?

I have also seen one Danish-maker stamped copy with the incorrect orientation.  I have 3 speculations (beyond the scope of this blog) why this reversed-orientation may have occurred with some replicators.

Leidesdorff (Sweden) cataloged a copy, Tarpon-draget (with the correct orientation), in 1936 and 1946 (which I have photocopies of).  The Swedish auction site is a good source for those spoons, although only a few come up per yer.
