Vintage Sterling Silver Glass-topped Danish Thimble, Hans Jensen & 830s Thimble:
Two vintage sterling silver thimbles: blue glass-topped Hans Jensen & Co. (Denmark) thimble with chased flower on one side. It is marked inside as a 7 and weighs 3.79 grams. Excellent, pre-owned condition with a few needle scratches that aren't very deep; needs cleaning if shiny is preferred. The other one has been well-used (and loved) with wear to the pattern, scuffs and scrapes and is not completely round. Appears to be a bit larger than the other. Weight is 3.25 grams. Faint marks indicating 830S (common Norway/Denmark silver mark) with a tiny hallmark that is worn. Previous owner received the glass-top as a gift in the 1960's and the other was her own circa 1930's or 1940's. The older one is a very comfortable - almost soft - fit with plenty of life left. Nice thimbles to be used and treasured for generations. Payment by PAYPAL.
