Victorian nine carat gold thimble by Halifax thimble maker Charles Horner. Louise or interlocking asterisks pattern top, narrow border and round turn over rim. Stamped with the Louise pattern registered design number RD. 127211 registered by Charles Horner on June 18, 1889. Hallmarked in the border: RD. 127211, 8 (the size), C·H (for Charles Horner), the Chester (town shield) Assay Office mark, 9 and .375 (indicating 9 carat gold) and the date letter upper case "R" for 1900. The thimble is very good used condition - in round and free of holes, dents damage and repairs. There's some light needling you can feel on the inside of the thimble but it isn't pierced. Height approx. 2.4 cm; internal base diameter approx. 1.6 cm; weight 3.6 grams.

Comes with brown leather squarish presentation case with green velvet and silk lining. Gold tooling to the lid. Push button catch. A few knocks and bumps to the leather but nothing too tragic.

The 'Louise' pattern is documented by Norma Spicer and Diane Pelham Burn in British Registered Design Thimbles, 2003, p.9:

'RD No. 112721 registered June 18, 1889 by Charles Homer of Halifax and made by him. It is known as the 'Louise' pattern and shows rows of vertical and horizontal asterisks. This pattern was used by Horner on both his Dorcas and silver thimbles and is a common design.'
