silver thimbles for sale - james swann

Sterling silver thimbles produced by James Swann - James Swann & Son - Swann Thimbles

 

James Swann became James Swann & Son in 1922

 

James Swann & Son, most recently owned by Ray Coggle, closed in April 2005

 

There will be no more new silver thimbles made by JS&S

 

Many of the later thimbles [& not only the enamelled ones] have the hallmarks struck up in the apex and therefore very difficult to read

 

Norma Spicer's book James Swann (& Son) makers of gold & silver thimbles 1887-present is a must for collectors of Swann thimbles
