Antique Carved Bog Oak Owl Thimble Holder

Irish * Circa 1890s

This nice antique figural piece is carved of bog oak with lots of detail. It's in the shape of an owl and still has its original amber glass eyes. Thetop has a space holding a small brass thimble, about an American child's size 1 (11 mm in diameter). The condition is excellent, in round with no holes, repairs or other damage. The thimble fits perfectly so the owl must have been intended for a child.

Aside from a fine surface crack on the front, the bog oak is also in excellent condition with no chips or loss and the owl measures 2" high. Thimble owls like this one are shown on p. 193 of Bridget McConnel's book Antique Needlework Tools and also on p. 134 of Thimbles by Edwin Holmes.
