Finger guards were worn on the index finger of the hand that held the fabric to act as a protection from the prick of the needle in use. This is such an example and most likely is English, but could be Continental - maybe Dutch. It does not appear to have a maker’s mark. It has fine horizontal ribbing with a wide band of bright-cut engraving with the addition of a narrow faceted band at the edge. Many early sewing boxes have two specific indentations – one for a thimble and one for a finger guard such as this. It does not appear to have a maker’s mark. The condition is excellent for age and it would be an interesting addition to a collection of thimbles or to add to your own special early sewing box. Length 0.8 ins (2.1cm).Weight 2 grams.
