Four Scandinavian Thimbles

Postby carling » Wed Oct 19, 2005 7:51 pm

Can anyone identify the makers' marks on one or more of these four Scandinavian silver thimbles?


1. Marked 830 SJ. Danish, I think.
2. 830 S KGJ. Norwegian?
3. 830 S BH. Norwegian again?
4. I've just found the Swedish page on this site and believe the C8 means 1929. The helpful link on that page seems to indicate the maker (NJ) is NORDISKA JUVELAKTIEBOLAGET, Stockholm. So that's OK then. :o)

1) SJ is probably the Danish maker S.A.J. Jacobsen in the town of Slagelse (1937 - 1973)

2) Why do you think this is Norwegian? I think it looks more like danish mark, and in that case it's Knud Georg Jensen in Copenhagen (1908 - 1948)

3) Agree that it's probably Norwegian. In that case the maker is Berhardt Hertz.

4) You have interpreted the Swedish marks splendidly! I might add that the figurative mark is Sweden's patron saint S:t Erik, which is the town mark for Stockholm.

Best regards / Matulda

God dag Matulda, and thank you for your very kind, fast and informative reply. Apart from #4 I was really only guessing at the country of origin.

Hej då!
