This is just the item you are looking for if you have a thimble that does not have its protective thimble box! This example is of black leatherette and is lined with deep green velvet for the thimble and the lid being partly unlined. It closes with a classic swiveling hook going into a small eye and the hinge is sound. The box is in very good condition for age with some slight wear to the edges of the leatherette. This would be a lovely small item to protect one of your small thimbles. The space for the thimble is height 1 ins (2.5cm) x maximum width 0.75 ins (1.8cm). The box measures 1.4 ins (3.5cm) x 1 ins (2.5cm). Weight 6 grams.
