Beautiful vintage jasper thimble.Very good condition!! Made in England by Wedgwood.

"Josiah Wedgwood founded Wedgwood at Burslem in 1754. Though factory records show that Wedgwood made thimbles in the late 18th century, it seems that none have survived. With the increase in popularity of thimble collecting, Wedgwood began to produce thimbles again in 1980.

Wedgwood jasperware has been produced since 1774. Jasperware is matt stoneware made from Cornish clay that is coloured throughout the body and has an applied decoration or cameo of a contrasting colour. The most famous jasperware combination is a white cameo design on what has become know as 'Wedgwood blue'. The cameos are hand applied, as they have been since jasperware was first invented.

The first new jasperware thimble produced by Wedgwood in 1980, is the Josiah Wedgwood thimble. It commemorates the 250th anniversary of the birth of Josiah Wedgwood. The thimble is not dated and the edition was limited to 10,000 worldwide - that type of figure is mind-boggling to collectors in 2007! The presentation box has the dates 1730-1980. "
