Note on the "fouled" anchor hallmark:
The mark - known as the "fouled anchor" - on the thimble above is that of
Stern Brothers of Philadelphia. The anchor mark dates the thimble to 1890 -
1908. It became Goldsmith, Stern & Co in 1913 until it folded in 1933.
Measures 3/4" by 5/8" of the opening. Purchased from a local estate so you
know it has been used but is in excellent condition. See the Pictures as they
are part of the description.
See ‘THIMBLES & SEWING IMPLEMENTS’ BY Estelle Zalkin. Out of Print but
if you do a search in your computer you will probably find one.
Please view all the pictures and send an email if you have any
questions. I liquidate and buy local estates, all items are sold in as
found condition. I DO NOT CUSTOMIZE, REFINISH OR REPAIR.
Most of my items are ANTIQUE OR Vintage with patina, which adds
to the charm of the item, and may naturally show some wear from
age and use. I have endeavored to photograph and accurately
