I am indebted to an er and silversmith who writes as follows about the above Swingler thimble:
Hi there. Thought you might like to know that this is a Bullfinch. I make silver thimbles and we used to supply Peter with some and he did us a few painted ones in return. His work is superb and he did do one of this picture for us about 5 years ago. He doesn't do any for us now as he is pretty well retired but I still have the last 3 he did for us in 2010. Good luck with the sale.
