A post-medieval, cast copper alloy, ring-type thimble, open at both ends, with a solid, thickened rim at the base and eight horizontal rows of machine made indentations around the circumference. There are no maker's marks. The type and solidity of the construction suggests that this is a tailor's thimble, probably English, of the 18th century or early 19th century (1700-1820) (see Holmes, FRG datasheet no 9). It is 20.5mm wide at the base, tapering towards the top, 14.9mm high and 2.5mm thick at the base. It weighs 6.19 gm.
