We try to cover many different collecting fields, snuff boxes, sovereign cases, vestas, peeps/stanhopes, fans,   hat pins, card cases, pictures, samplers, tole ware and jewellery. If we haven’t got it, we will try to get it for you. We have a large selection of antique silver thimbles. Many different makers, designs, and hall marks. Prices start around £35-£100, depending on the rarity of the design.
