Vintage Stone Top Sterling Silver Thimble
English * Hallmarked 1930
This pretty silver thimble has a wide rim and an engraved band. A dimpled piece of jade is set into the top. The rim is stamped with the English sterling hallmarks for Birmingham 1930 and the maker's mark for James Swann & Son.
The side has a shallow dent but there are no holes or damage to the stone. It is about an American size 9 (15.5 mm diameter opening). Several British stone top thimbles of similar style are shown on pp. 86-87 of Bridget McConnel's book The Story of the Thimble.
