Antique Royal Worcester Blush Thimble w/ Bird

English * Circa 1870-90

This beautiful antique Royal Worcester porcelain thimble is a nice example of one of the early thimbles made with a peach colored "blush" ground. It varies from a soft peach on one side to a golden color on the other. One side is hand painted with a little blue tit and the other side has a branch. The bottom and top are painted with gold bands.

It's about an American size 9 and is translucent when held to the light. The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks or loss of gilding or paint. It has a high gloss glaze inside and a matte finish outside and on the top.Several of the Worcester blush thimbles with birds are shown on pp. 101-107 of the Story of the Thimble by Bridget McConnel.
