DESCRIPTION

This is a fine, and relatively rare, solid silver thimble made by James Swann and Son of Hylton Street, Birmingham to commemorate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. It features traditional punched dot / honeycomb decoration to the top and upper part of the shaft but below this is a magnificent, cast and stepped border with a representation to the Royal State Coach and horses passing the Houses of Parliament on route to Westminster Abbey. There is also a panel with the Queen’s

E II R insignia and the date 1953 surrounded by a rose, clover leaf, daffodil and thistle, these being the emblems of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland respectively. Finally, there is a plain, contrasting band at the rim which carries the hallmarks.

The hallmarks are good and clear; the assay mark is for Birmingham with the date letter C for 1953 as well as the Queen’s head. The maker’s mark is JS&S. The size is 5.

A genuine quality item for collectors of thimbles or articles related to Royalty.
