This very rare little thimble is hand carvedand decorated with a technique called piqué. Silver dots have been inlaid in a pattern around the band. It has a beautiful old patina and grain pattern. The condition is excellent with no chips, cracks, holes or other damage.

It measures 7/8" tall and is about an American size 5 (13.5 mm diameter opening). Sewing tools made with this technique are shown on p. 88 (plate 92) of Nerylla Taunton's book Antique Needlework Tools and Embroideries.
