About Us

Welcome to the Thimble Society

We specialise in thimbles and sewing tools although we sell many other small objets d’art and collectables. We try to cover many different collecting fields, snuff boxes, sovereign cases, vestas, peeps/stanhopes, fans, hat pins, card cases, pictures, samplers and jewellery. If we haven’t got it, we will try to get it for you. We have a large selection of antique silver thimbles. Many different makers, designs, and hall marks. Prices start around £30-£300, depending on the rarity of the design.
