Oh, the stories this old thimble could tell. Imagine decades ago, when women sat around in fashionable circles, sewing and embroidering fine pieces as they chatted about their work and whatever else was fodder for conversation. It was 'social networking' at its most creative.
This thimble is made of sterling silver. It has overlay wire work and other ornamentation around the sides. The top is dimpled.
There's a circular hallmark inside. We can make out STERLING 925. The rest is not legible though this is generally the hallmark shape of items made in Mexico / Taxco. The thimble measures 1 inch high by 3/4 inch across the opening. Unpolished. Excellent condition.
