Antique Engl Sterling Silver Thimble W/ Gold Heart & Ivy Leaves* Hallmarked 1896:
Antique English Sterling Silver Thimble w/ Gold Heart & Ivy Leaves
Chester 1896 Hallmarks * by Henry Griffith & Sons
sterling silver thimble has an engraved rim and applied gold ivy leaves
the hand engraved band. An applied gold heart serves as the cartouche
(not personalized). It has the English
sterling hallmarks for Chester 1896 and the maker's mark for Henry
Griffith & Sons.
It's about an American size 8 (15 mm diameter opening). The top has been repaired to fill a couple of needle holes. The condition is otherwise good, in round with no other damage. A couple of Charles Horner's thimbles with this style band are shown on p. 97 of Bridget McConnel's book The Story of the Thimble. I've never seen one by Henry Griffith before.
I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
