Rare Charles Horner "Silver Cased"
Thimble, ca 1920s - *Not* Dorcas

DESCRIPTION

SEE ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW

Rare 'Silver Cased' thimble made by Charles Horner of Halifax. In appearance this thimble looks like a plain pattern, flat top Charles Horner Dorcas thimble but unlike the Dorcas it is not steel cored but is made of silver plated brass or base metal. It does not attract a magnet. The rim of the thimble is stamped 5 (the size), C·H for Charles Horner and SILVER CASED. The thimble is in excellent condition - in round and free of holes, dents, damage and repairs. Height approx. 2.3 cm; internal base diameter 1.7 cm; weight 9.1 grams.

Introduced post World War I (when all Horner thimbles were made with flatter tops than previously) perhaps - in a time of austerity - as an even cheaper alternative to the popular Dorcas thimble and maybe also to capture a market share already well served by Charles Iles of Birmingham - who also made 'Silver Cased' thimbles. Over the years I have also seen a few Horner 'Silver Cased' thimbles with an all over Daisy and Flora (daisy over waffle border) patterns. Clearly the strategy wasn't all that successful as Horner 'Silver Cased' thimbles are only rarely found today.
