Caverswall Thimbles is one of the largest groups of branded thimbles and the Company had the longest period of modern china thimble manufacture: 1977-1993.
The shape is dominant, with very little variety in shape over 15 years.
There are signed designs, where the artist would have added a small amount of handpainting over the decal of their design.
The most well-known of the Caverswall painters are Mary Grant, William R Tipton and John Ball.
There are not many thimbles made with ‘Mother’ on them. Caverswall, with their dated series, has the biggest selection.
