It's amazing what you find buried in the back of a closet! I had totally forgotten about this wonderful box of 12 porcelain thimbles from the AK Kaiser company of Germany. They are all Christmas thimbles dated from 1981 - 1983. The collection includes:
5 thimbles. dated 1981
3 thimbles dated 1982
4 thimbles dated 1983
If you're unfamiliar with the AK Kaiser company, it was founded in 1872 in Germany. To this day it continues to make fine porcelain pieces and according to the website, "In Germany there are few households in which at least one of our products cannot be found, whether it’s a bisque vase, a figurine or a piece of a dining set...Kaiser Porzellan is V.I.P. ... very important porcelain ... for life’s beautiful and special moments."
The photos above are arranged in year order beginning with 1981 to show you a view of the paintings on each thimble from 3 sides, for a total of 3 views of each thimble based on year.
It would be wonderful to be offering buyers 12 thimbles that include one for each year, but it is what it is. Perhaps you sell at craft shows or flea markets and these would make an interesting addition to your offerings. Or perhaps you have family members who were born in 1981 or 1982 or 1983 who would be tickled pink to find an AK Kaiser Porcelain thimble dated for the year of their birth in a special, and thoughtful little present from you.
