Vintage Silver Love Birds Thimble
French * Circa 1970s
This solid silver thimble has 2 love birds and garlands of roses around the band. It is stamped with the tiny French crab hallmark that indicates 800/1000 pure silver and also has the maker's mark for Lenain & Cie. In the 1970s, Roger Lenain reissued several silver thimbles that were originally made at the turn of the century by Lorillon/Féau and this is one of them.
The condition is excellent, in round with no holes, repairs or other damage and it's about an American size 9 (16 mm diameter opening). This thimble was not made for export and thus is not marked "France" as they sometimes are. It is gilded inside.
I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
