The most well known Royal Doulton thimbles are those featuring Jill Barklem’s Brambly Hedge thimbles, which were produced in two sets – in 1982 and 1983. Their production of thimbles ended with two larger sets in 1994 and 1995. In between, there were only six thimble designs produced!!
The Royal Doulton thimble range is only made from bone china (although not always backstamped as such) – as against fine bone china.
There is also a highly collectible range of Royal Doulton crystal thimbles. There were only around 50 different Royal Doulton china thimbles made plus 12 crystal.
