More on the Thimbles
A friend was visiting and when I showed her my thimbles she thought that all but four of them might be silver. One of the others could be brass. Three of them are new aluminum. The big one she claimed is a thumb thimble which is how some people quilt. It does, in fact, fit perfectly on my thumb but I can't imagine quilting that way. I am wondering if I should try to clean the other ones to see if they are actually silver. I know less than nothing about thimbles, or silver for that matter, so any advice would be helpful. After watching Antiques Road Show I am reluctant to clean anything, even my house. Lol.
