DESCRIPTION

SEE ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW

Antique Victorian egg shaped screw threaded ox bone thimble holder. Small surface hairline near the 'pointy' (pictured below) though it doesn't go through to the inside but otherwise undamaged and in excellent condition for its age. Screw threads are in perfect working order. Measures just over 4 cm from end to end.

Comes with a Victorian sterling silver thimble with plain knurled top, wriggle work band over a reeded skirt with decorative applied galerie rim. From the same era as the thimble holder. Like most silver thimbles before the 1880s this thimble is not hallmarked but tests as sterling. In very good used condition - not perfectly round with at the opening and some needle dings but free of holes, major damage and repairs. Height approx. 2.5 cm; internal base diameter approx. 1.5 cm; weight 4.4 grams.
