Antique Knitting Lady Silver Thimble W/ Waffle Knurling * French * Circa 1900 For Sale
Knitting Lady Silver Thimble w/ Waffle
* Circa 1900
thimble was made
at the turn of the century with "waffle" style knurling. There are all
sorts of opinions about what the featured lady is doing. I think she's
knitting, but some resources say she's crocheting or tatting. Bleeding
hearts blossoms circle around the band behind her and the pattern goes
into the knurling. It is stamped with the tiny
French boar's head silver hallmark that indicates 800/1000 pure silver
& it also has the maker's mark (rubbed).
is excellent, in round with no holes, repairs or
other damage and it's about an American size 8. This thimble was in the
collection of Diane Pelham Burn and is the one that was photographed
for Plate 41 (page 41) in Thimbles
of France With Waffled Knurling by Beryl Frank.
