DESCRIPTION

SEE ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW

The Thimble Holder: Victorian Two part (top and pedestal) varnished hardwood treen thimble stand in the form of an acorn. In excellent condition. Approx 7.2 cm tall; diameter at base 3.7 cm; weighs 16.6 grams (without thimble).

A similar example can be found on page 213 in Edwin Holmes' book A History of Thimbles. Holmes offers this commentary:

"The thimble stand is not really a thimble case but rather a special type of thimble holder with the thimble resting as if on a pedestal ready for use. It has been said that the thimble stand is a relic of the days when the thimble was still a domestic treasure and a household necessity rather than a personal possession."

The Thimble: Victorian child's size sterling silver thimble with plain knurled top over an engraved wriggle work border and faceted turn over rim. The thimble has no assay marks (silver thimbles were not usually hallmarked until the 1880s) but tests as sterling silver. In excellent condition - in round and free of holes, dents, damage and repairs. Height approx. 1.9 cm; internal base diameter approx. 1.3 cm; weight 2 grams.
