Silver from Meigle
« on: March 04, 2019, 12:31:43 PM »
I have found silver thimbles before but never one with a name on it.  Large capitals at the base JEANNIE.  I wonder if Jeannie is still looking for it?  So far not managed to examine the hallmarks.  Also found a wee butter knife, here are the hallmarks.  And a nice livery button that may be either Dobbie or Garshore (both Scottish). More likely Dobbie.  Maybe there is a garden centre who will give me a fortune for it.   The final item is a button that I have no idea about.
Howard.
