COMMENTS: There are no pinholes in the thimble. This unique Sterling Silver Thimble has diamond cut detailed designs. The inside of the thimble is engraved, but I can not read it. The front reads sterling 5. Collectable thimbles are available different types of metal, ceramic or pottery. Many have intricate designs protruding from the arched top. Some have patterns on the sides while some portray animals flowers, boats, trains, signs of the zodiac, months of the year, characters etc. They are also created by major companies as promotional items and are highly valued by the collectors. Though the modern collectable thimbles are not meant for actual use it adds to the joy of a large number of people who find miniature sculpture and art in the form of sewing thimbles.
