German 'the Busy Family' Sterling Silver Thimble, Greif / Wengert For Sale
German 'The Busy Family' Sterling Silver Thimble, Thorvald Greif and Julius Wengert
SEE ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW
Known as 'Die Fleißige Familie' (The Busy or Industrious Family) this sterling silver thimble was first made around 1910 by Gabler Brothers of Schorndorf, Germany. The border depicts a mother and children engaged in domestic activities - winding wool, needlework and playing with a kitten. This version was made in the 1980s using the original Gabler Brothers dies and was a collaboration between Thorvald Greif of Creglingen and Julius Wengert of Pforzheim, Germany. The thimble has an eight-point star pattern on the crown and is stamped in the knurling with Thorvald Greif's "G" in a star mark. Under the crown the thimble is marked 925 M (medium) - characteristic marks of Wengert of Pforzheim. The thimble is in excellent undamaged condition. Height approx. 2.1 cm; internal base diameter 1.6 cm; weight 6.7 grams.
