This thimble honors Cream of Wheat cereal. It is made of pewter and stands 1.75 inches tall. I purchased a large collection of vintage thimbles recently at an estate sale and although I don’t know a date for this piece, the seller said her mother collected them for many many years. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s probably from the 1970s or 1980s.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Package Mail charges of $5.20. Shipping is from Arizona.
SPECIAL NOTE about SHIPPING CHARGES: Twice yearly and again in November for the holiday season (so 3 times each year) the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based on weight and zip code. Now, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. This year's increases have added an additional 1.36 cents to up to $4.03 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges and haven't increased my shipping charges in three years. This year, unfortunately, I have to increase the shipping. I'll try to keep it reasonable and even absorb some of the changes when possible.
About Combined Shipping:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased, but my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of over payment. If you are uncomfortable with that, send me a message with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES - No International purchases will be accepted. Due to claims that merchandise is not being received in various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer process international orders.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
