Antique Silver Filigree Doll's Shoe Thimble Holder

English * Circa 1820-50

This wonderful little figural piece is solid silver (tests sterling silver) and is hand made of delicate filigree. It is in the form of a tiny Dutch shoe and dates from early-mid 19th century. The filigree is perfect with no breaks, dents or loss. Inside is a miniature sterling silver thimble (also tested). The slipper measures 1" long and the thimble is 3/8" tall.

It was made either as a miniature "toy" or for a lucky young girl's doll. It was once in the collection of Diane Pelham Burn and this is the piece that was photographed in plate 10 on p. 43 of her book Sew Precious, Children's Needlework Tools & Dolls' Sewing Tools.
