Antique English Sterling Silver Thimble w/ Gold Heart & Ivy Leaves

Chester 1896 Hallmarks * by Henry Griffith & Sons

This gorgeous sterling silver thimble has an engraved rim and applied gold ivy leaves around 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.
