David Anderson enamel thimbles

Hi friends and collectors. Hopefully this blog will encourage an exchange of information and gossip that we can enjoy. It is amazing to see the David Anderson enamel thimbles fetched around a thousand pounds each [including premium] in Bleasedales Auction last month. Have a look in your collections, you might have bought one a long time ago. They need to be the older variety with moonstone tops and typical Scandinavian scenes in enamel on silver gilt. they will have DA stamped inside the top. The Alexander McQueen show has set a record at the V&A Museum. Design/sewing has risen to inclusion in the realm of Art. Maybe sewing tools will be better appreciated in the future
