So, Agram, these are the thimbles I talked about in your previous post.
Three of them are inherited from my grandmother. You can see tehm on the second picture. I m really sorry, I never checked the silvermarks...maybe someone around here wants to enlighten me? ;-)
The big one is a really pretty art deco one...I can imagine my grandmother sitting in a sofa and restoring some clothes from her son or her husband. She was born in 1912 so she must have encountered hard times during her life.
The art nouveau-ish thimble on the third and fourth picture is one I got from my husband/ boyfriend...well he won it in a lot with some other stuff and he didn t really have a purpose for it, so I asked it till he gave in ;-) it has some really nice vermeil details.
The one with the ship is a new one my other brought with her from a trip.
I hope you enjoy them!
