Silver 'Atlantic Cable' Thimble & Jeweller's Case, ca. 1870

DESCRIPTION

SEE ADDITIONAL PICTURES BELOW

Early example of the now quite rare 'Atlantic Cable' thimble with fleur-de-lis 'cable' skirt, scalloped rim, engraved wrigglework band and vacant cartouche. Most probably made between 1860-1880. Like most English thimbles before the 1880s this thimble does not bear any hallmarks though tests as sterling silver. The thimble is in excellent condition - very slightly off round but free of holes, dents, damage and repairs. Height approx. 2.6 cm; internal base diameter approx 1.6 cm; weight 4.4 grams.

Comes complete with jeweller's shaped brown leather thimble case with hook and eye catch. Lined with white silk and blue velvet.
