Exceptional Antique Sterling Silver Thimble * Applied Floral Band * Circa 1900s:
Exceptional Antique Sterling Silver Thimble
German * Early 20th Century
This great little thimble is one of the highest quality German silver thimbles I've seen in awhile. It has an embossed rim and the band has applied flowers and leaves. These have been hand engraved and chased and the work is very fine. The front has an applied shield shaped cartouche (no personalization). It is stamped "Sterling" right above the rim which means it was made for export. The 8 pointed star on top is the mark of Gabler.
The condition is excellent, crisp and in round with no holes, dents or other damage. It's about an American size 8/9 (15.25 mm diameter opening).
I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
