ADVERTISING THIMBLES 1920-1940
17 Advertising Thimbles
Advertising thimbles are almost always twentieth-century American in origin. Generally, they were made of plastic or aluminum and mass produced and inexpensive. Used to support products that appealed to homemakers, these promotional thimbles were stamped or embossed with a business name or logo. What better way to get your business in front of your target audience than have her wear it on her fingertip? The products advertised included a diverse range of goods and services including coal, insurance, food, dry cleaning, and appliances.
