Grainger Gold Thimble Royal Worcester Historic Pattern Set 1993 A/f For Sale

Grainger Gold Thimble Royal Worcester Historic Pattern Set 1993 A/f

FOR AVOIDANCE OF ALL DOUBT YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE SAME THIMBLE PICTURED FROM DIFFERENT SIDES

This is one of thebeautiful thimblesfrom the Historic Patterns Through the Ages setcommissioned in 1993 by Compton & Woodhouse, an English mail-order company, to commemorate the 242-year old heritage [1751-1993] of Royal Worcester.

Eachthimble wasdecorated with anhistorical pattern found on early pieces of Royal Worcester - this one being Grainger Gold - a band of golden flowers and leavesand embellished withgold lines round the top and bottom.

It is stamped inside, in black, with the familiar Royal Worcester England mark.

It measures very approximately 27mm high x 22mm base diameter.

The thimble is not chipped or cracked though under close magnification I can see quite a lot of fine scratches on the gilding though not deep enough to reveal the china under. Also, as you can see, the top gold line is crooked and there is pinprick size indentation under the gilding (2nd picture) ; the standing edge is also a bit uneven and could denote a ground out chip.

Sorry, I don't have any of the cards issued with the thimbles.

I have pictured and described the thimble honestly and the best I can; it is NOT marked as a factory second and is still a pretty display item but the maker's flaws and wear are reflected in the asking price and you are offerding on this basis.

If you have any doubts or questions please ask before offerding and I will be happy to help.

I am totally honest about my charges and do not inflate my p&p rates to compensate for my realistic starting prices.

I also offer a generous postal discount for multiple purchases but this is not applied automatically so if you are buying more than one thimble from me, PLEASE, do not pay for your items individually, instead, wait for my invoice which will combine your purchases and apply the discount.

Postage and packing charges are as follows:-

UK - Royal Mail's 1st/2nd Class small parcel weight band starts at 0-1kg and costs £3.00/£2.60 - this will cover the cost of posting up to 30 thimbles! Just make your choice when you check out.

Europe - up to 3 thimbles £3.00; up to 10 £3.50; up to 20 £4.95.

Zone 2 (Australia & New Zealand) - up to 3 thimbles £3.50; up to 10 £4.70; up to 20 £7.55.

Zone 1 (rest of the world) - up to 3 thimbles £3.50; up to 10 £4.50; up to 20 £7.55.

All buyers - if you buy more I will pack, weigh and charge you the appropriate Royal Mail rate.

There may be a modest difference between what I charge and the actual postage cost and this is to go toward's my expenses.

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING INSURANCE -Royal Mail’s new rules for 2013 means that in the event of any mishap the above rates now provide compensation of up to £20 only. If you wish to increase this I can post by Confirmed/Signed For Delivery if you pay the additional cost - if want this option please check the amount with me before paying.

I cannot be held responsible for items lost or damaged in the post but I always obtain a certificate of posting and will help where I can. If I have to make a claim from the Post Office on your behalf you will be reimbursed with what I receive from them.

OVERSEAS - PAYPAL ONLY in sterling please.

Returns will be accepted if the item is incorrectly described, which I have tried to do accurately. But, I am human and do make mistakes so if I have got it wrong please contact me before leaving response so that I can put things right - this may be by way of a replacement or a refund.

Good luck with your offerding - thank you for looking.
