Antique Gilded Silver Filigree Mandolin Thimble Holder W/ Child's Thimble *c1820 For Sale

Antique Silver Filigree Mandolin Thimble Holder

English * Circa 1820 * Child's Thimble

This wonderful little figural piece is solid sterling silver (tested) that has been gilded and is made of delicate filigree. The bottom is hinged and opens to hold a small child's thimble. The catch is secure and it latches tightly. It dates from early 19th century. The filigree is perfect with no breaks, dents or loss. The strings are intact and the detail is lovely. It measures 2 5/8" long.

The thimble inside is English and also tests sterling silver. It has a bright cut engraved band and was made before English silversmiths were required to mark and pay duty on small items. It does have a maker's mark, however. It's tall but only about an American size 3 (12 mm diameter opening). It's also in excellent condition with no holes or repairs. A variety of silver filigree sewing tools are shown on pp. 92-93 of Nerylla Taunton's book Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries.
