On 08-Mar-13 at 07:56:26 GMT, seller added the following information:
Hello everyone! One of our helpful fellow ers wondered if it was possible that Østrem could have imported this thimble from Germany before adding his own mark. This kind of consideration is beyond our current level of expertise regarding thimbles, but we thought that it might be helpful information. The thimble is certainly beautifully made and of excellentquality.
