Vintage to Antique Thimble Collection 94 Pcs, Sterling Gold Plated Thimbles, Porcelain Bone China Thimbles, Cloinsonne Thimbles
Check out this beautiful large collection of (ninety-four) 94 Thimbles ranging from antique to vintage in age which were collected by a mother and daughter. This set contains a wonderful variety of everything imaginable, so I took the time to photograph each thimble. Please view all TEN photos by scrolling to the right to see each of these thimbles.
Below I will hit on the main point and the rest you can see in the pictures I provided.
President's Thimbles (there are 11 - note Kennedy is crossed off I dropped him....)
Bone China Signed by Several Known Makers in England
Many Porcelains including US States, Butterflies, Attractions, some signed porcelains that are beautiful such as KPM and Limoges
Metals including more US States, Foreign Thimbles, A few sterling silver thimbles that I see are marked with the possibility of more - I did not test any of these if they did not say sterling so there will be surprises)
Some beautiful gold plated and brass thimbles some with glass jewels and I think one has real blue stones
A few older Cloisonne Thimbles
A few gorgeous abalone inlays from Mexico which I believe are done on sterling again, I did not test.
Some Currier & Ives
A great set of Hummels
Other metals such as copper and pewter
I see a signed and numbered Norman Rockwell Thimble

Condition ranges from Good to Excellent as expected for the age. The wood case is included. It is in fair condition. It holds the thimbles well, but we note two small holes on the backing board. They cannot be seen from the front, only from the back and measure less than 1/8 of an inch. Just age wear that looks like small punctures. There is a plastic shield that is clear that covers the front of the display case which I removed for the photos which will be included. The display case can also be hung and has hardware on the back to do so.
