Item details

Being an avid home baker, we couldn’t resist offering a baker’s dozen instant collection of metal, aluminum, brass, and celluloid / plastic thimbles, plus three Gimbels Thimbles in their original boxes.

You could keep a handful in your sewing box and use others in jewelry-making or other crafting. We’ve seen very clever jewelry pendants and charms made with thimbles, and adorable miniature pincushions with the thimble as a base and a tiny felt ball inserted in the opening. You could also create a miniature planter with the thimble as a tiny pot. Lots of potential and creative options with this quantity.

Your collection will include:
• Two plastic/celluloid thimbles – one red-orange and one brown with its top having a marbled pattern
• One brass thimble
• Seven silver tone metal thimbles
• One wood butter churn Gimbels Thimbles in box (lid partially torn), 1-1/4” tall
• One hand-painted by “Donna 1994” kewpie / cherub / baby ceramic Gimbels Thimbles in box (lid closure missing), 1-1/4” tall
• One Made in Taiwan R.O.C. Conway Scenic Railroad No. Conway N.H. ceramic Gimbels Thimbles in white box, 1-3/16” tall

All are in used but good vintage condition with some of the metal thimbles having dents, tarnish, creases, wear and slightly flattened from their round shape. The Gimbels Thimbles in boxes are in like-new condition although their boxes have some tears or missing parts of their lid.

The metal, aluminum, brass and plastic / celluloid thimbles are one inch or less in height.

Will ship via USPS First Class.
