RARE, SOLID SILVER, CASED, DECORATIVE THIMBLE – IN COMMEMORATION OF THE ROYAL WEDDING OF CHARLES AND DIANA IN JULY 1981

A beautiful and highly decorative thimble made of solid silver to commemorate the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer on July 29th 1981 in St Paul’s Cathedral. It is cased in a presentation box.

Around the thimble are two sets of embossed, interlinked letters of the initials “C” for Charles and “D” for Diana. These are interspersed by two embossed sets of three plumed feathers on a crown – the symbol for the Prince of Wales. The entire piece is set against a background pattern of engine-turned chasing.

The bottom of the thimble is encircled with the words “THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF WALES JULY 1981”.

The base of the thimble carries the clear hallmarks of solid silver English silver from the Birmingham Assay Office. These are: the letters for the makers “A Ltd” in two concentric circles; the anchor mark to show that the silver was assayed in Birmingham; the lion passant denoting solid English silver; the letter “g” in a square for the year 1981.

The lovely piece stands at 2.8cm (1.1 inches) in height and 2.2cm (0.9 inches) in diameter. It weighs approximately 3g.

The condition is excellent – there are no holes, dents or splits and the base is circular. The thimble has clearly never been used and has been sitting in a box for the last 32 years! The presentation box is in very good condition - only worn commensurate with age.

A beautifully detailed, rare piece of royal history that is an absolute must for many different types of collector – thimbles, quality Royal Family memorabilia or Diana, Princess of Wales. Another regal, solid silver thimble to add to your collection in the year of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee Coronation anniversary year!

Please check out the other rare, royal, solid silver thimble in commemoration of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 we have listed at the moment. Hurry – it finishes tomorrow Friday 7th June at 20:59!
