1977 Mothers Day Handpainted Enamel On Solid Silver Thimble, J Swann, Hm B'ham For Sale
This is a fine quality, enamel on solid silver thimble
by James Swann & Son of Hylton
The enamel work features exquisite and colourful hand painted violets to the
front and a quotation from Shakespeare on the reverse. The line by William
Shakespeare reads “He who goes a Mothering finds violets in the lane”. The original English usage of Mothering
Sunday (the one day a year when you were freed from yourwork as a servant, labourer, apprentice etc.to visit your mother) has been
replaced in more recent years by the American term Mother’s Day.
The hallmarks are located on the inside top of the
thimble. They are tiny and difficult to see (also a very small amount of residue
from the enamelling process does not help) but with a good light and a
jeweller’s loupe of 30x magnification it is possible to see the maker’s mark
(JS&S), Lion Passant, Anchor (Birmingham assay) and date letter C for 1977.
Overall, this thimble is relatively rare as well as
being a superb example of workmanship and a delight to display. Ideal for
collectors themselves or as a gift for a mother who collects thimbles!
condition with no chips or cracks to the enamel and no dents, splits or holes
to the silver.
