Ornate Antique Child's Indian Sterling Silver Thimble

Circa 1890 * English Import

This cast repoussé silver thimble is solid sterling silver (tested) and was made in India in thelate 19th century for export to the British market. It has an unusual scale design on top and an all over scrolling leaf design. The details have been chased for extra sparkle.

It's about an American child's size 5 (13.5 mm diameter opening). The condition is excellent, crisp and in round with no holes or other damage. Several Indian thimbles in this style are shown in color on p. 40 of Edwin Holmes' book Thimbles.
