Antique Silver 1918 Armistice Thimble w/ Waffle Knurling

French * Circa 1900

This scarce silver thimble has "waffle" style knurling and was made to celebrate the Armistice of 1918 after World War I. The words PAX and LABOR are incorporated into the design as is the name of the designer, Firmin-Pierre Lasserre. The designs around the sides depict a man and woman embracing, a man working in the fields and a goddess holding her sword and comforting a woman. It is stamped with the tiny French hallmark that indicates 800/1000 pure silver and incorporates the maker's mark for Jean Levy.

The condition is excellent, in round with no holes, repairs or other damage and it's about an American size 9 (16 mm diameter opening). This thimble was in the collection of Diane Pelham Burn and is the one that was photographed for Plate 12 (page 19) in Thimbles of France With Waffled Knurling by Beryl Frank.
