Rare Antique Silver & Horn Thimble

English * Circa 1820

This rare antique thimble is made of horn with a sterling silver top (tested). It measures slightly over 5/8" high and it's about an American size 6 (14 mm diameter opening).

There is a 1/4" hairline crack at the rim in one spot. The condition is otherwise excellent and it has a gorgeous patina. The silver top is perfect. I've never seen another like this one. It resembles the early tortoise shell thimbles in style and was bought in England.



I stand behind everything that I offer and guarantee that it is exactly as presented.
