Halcyon Days of Bilston, England, not only produces lovely enamel boxes, but other items such as this enamel and brass thimble. The thimble is inscribed on one side: Thomas Tusser, 1524-1580, Good Husbandry. On the other side, it reads: Dry August and warm Doth harvest no harm.
Thomas Tusser was an English farmer and poet. The quote on the thimble was taken from his famous poem, "Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandry," or his original poem, "A Hundreth Good Pointes of Husbandrie," written c. 1557.
The thimble is in excellent condition and adorned with pretty flowers. It stands 1" high and is .75" across the base. It comes in its velvet lined presentation box with a certificate of authenticity pamphlet. Just a beautiful piece to add to your sewing, thimble, or Halcyon Days collection.
