The first silver thimble depicting the scene shown in Rembrandt's Nightwatch was made around 1920 by thimble maker Ottmar Soergel. Early in the 1980's master goldsmith Thorvald Greif, founder of the famous thimble museum in Creglingen, Germany, decided to reproduce this thimble and hopefully improve on the original version from which some details were omitted.
The result was the offered thimble showing the total scene of the Nightwatch, including the dog who had been excluded on the early version.
The Rembrandt thimble was limited to 1000 World-wide. This early example is number 71.
The thimble is marked 925, has the G-star mark for Greif with engraved number 71.
Condition is MINT.
