Sterling silver two band thimble by Waite, Thresher Co. of Providence, Rhode Island, ca 1890-1915. Plain knurled top over a plain band and relief fretwork pattern border on a reeded background. Plain band engraved with the initials H·M·C. Marked under the crown with the Waite, Thresher Co. Thimble-in-Star mark, STERLING and the size number (7). Some needle scratches on the plain band and very slightly off round but free of holes, dents, damage and repairs. Height approx. 2 cm; internal base diameter approx 1.5 cm; weight 3.1 grams.
This thimble design is documented in Gay Ann Rogers' American Silver Thimbles, p.123, plate 36, and is dated c. 1890-1915. She writes: "a fretwork pattern so stylized it reflects the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement either through an Art Deco or American Indian design. The raised pattern appears in sharp contrast to the finely reeded background."
