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
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.
