Royal Worcester Thimbles

Royal Worcester ThimblesRoyal Worcester began making thimbles during the mid 19th Century.  From 1860 to 1939 they used ‘parian’ which is smooth with a creamy colouring. The thimbles were hand painted. 
 
Later Royal Worcester began to use Bone China which is very white and translucent.  One of the first fine bone china thimbles produced for the collectibles market was made by Royal Worcester in 1974.  It is known as the ‘Bridal’ thimble and is is one Royal Worcesters most recognisable thimbles.  It was not hand painted  but was decorated by means of a decal.
