Antique Sterling Silver Filigree Thimble

English * Circa 1800

This lacy thimble is solid sterling silver (tested) and made of delicate filigree. It's English and dates to the late 18th or early 19th century. It's a tall thimble and about an American size 7 (opening is 14.25 mm in diameter). It has been lightly gilded. Usually these have no marks at all, but this one has the maker's mark "SM" stamped inside the top. This mark belonged to Samuel Marshall, of 23 Castle Street, High Holborn (London). He registered the mark in 1799.

The condition is excellent with no loss of filigree and it has no dents or holes in the top section. The oval cartouche on the front is not inscribed. Nerylla Taunton shows this thimble on p. 93 of her book Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries.
