Copper alloy double thimble dating to the Post-medieval period 1850 to 1900AD. It would appear that one thimble has been pressed into another for an unknown reason. The thimble is conical with a foot ring and with its wall covered by close spaced machine stamped pits in horizontal rows, though appearing to rise from right to left. The domed top has larger rectangular indentations in a grid or lattice pattern. The length is 25mm, the width is 21mm and the weight 8.40g..
