DESCRIPTION

SEE ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW

Charles Edward Iles' 'Mermaid Shell' thimble holder in the form of a scallop shell covered with brown 'plush' velvet fabric and lined with brown 'plush' and gold coloured silk with brass thimble clip, hook and eye catch and fancy hinge. As you can see in the pictures it is in very good condition - with minimal wear. As well as being a manufacturer of thimbles Charles Iles also made a variety of thimble boxes and holders as well as point-of-sale displays. This case is documented in Norma Spicer's Charles Iles - A Family of Thimble Makers, p.p 47-48.

Comes with a nickel silver waffle pattern thimble. Also made by Charles Edward Iles of Birmingham. This thimble bears the 'three thimbles' trademark which Iles registered in 1876 (see Norma Spicer: Charles Iles - A Family of Thimble Makers, p.16). The thimble is in excellent condition - in round with no holes, dents or damage.
