Early 19th Century Thimble Holder with Victoria Jubilee

Out of stock

This deceptively simple thimble case has been hand-crafted from either bone or vegetable ivory. It has tiny brass hinges and is lined in soft wool flannel. Almost certainly from the Victorian period, I have added a special silver thimble engraved with Victorian Jubilee.

The thimble and holder are supplied in one of my hand-crafted vintage linen pockets.

With the thimble snug inside, the holder measures 1.5in (4cm).

The story of this little treasure

Probably made from either bone or vegetable ivory, this holder is simple in construction but perfect for the job in hand. The two pieces match perfectly and are joined with perfectly made brass hinges. The silver thimble is engraved with both a hallmark and the words Victorian Jubilee – It seemed the perfect time to offer this with Her Majesty’s Jubilee just around the corner!
