Silver thimble fragment, missing domed top, made from silver sheet now pressed out. Plain border roughly engraved Thinke: on with a gap, then a D possibly for the word Death. The body stamped with waffle-shaped indentations leaving a design in reserve of scrolls supporting hearts and flowers. Late 17th Century, of a type commonly reported through the Treasure Act. Compare TAR 2005-6 no. 833. The inscription is found on other examples. As such, due to its age and precious metal content, this object qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996. Dr Dora …

Silver thimble, beaded rim, circular indentations on the body, on one side a shaped scroll with cartouche engraved with owner's initials, EB supported by birds. Above this, a maker's mark, P(?) S. 1.6 cm long. Early 18th Century, perhaps just pre 1708. Probably made for a child, given its tiny size. Compare a very similar child's thimble from the collection of Edwin Holmes, Christie's, 31 May 1995, lot 92, with maker's mark IB. As such, due to its age and precious metal content, this object qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Thimble, made from sheet with dome now detached. Body covered with saffle-shaped indentations, edge plain. Appears to have been polished since detection. 17th Century type. For a close parallel see The Thimble Collection of Edwin Holmes, Christie's London, 31 May 1995, lot 203, there dated to the early 17th Century. As such, due to its age and precious metal content, this object qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996.

Squashed silver thimble, decorated over most of the body with waffle-shaped indentations and a broad border left plain with no maker's mark or owner's mark visible. The damage makes it difficult to date this object with certainty but the form and design suggest to me that it might be as late as the mid 18th Century and is definitely post 1708.

Silver thimble, circular indentations over the body and top, two birds framing a cartouche designed for owner's initials. Worn and squashed. The best comparison is a thimble dating to the early 18th C from the collection of Edwin Holmes (Sotheby's South Kensington, London 31 May 1995, lot 61). It is probable that this thimble post-dates 1706 and it and therefore it falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

Silver thimble, missing its domed top, now flattened in shape and open along its original soldered join. Plain border demarcated by engraved lines, the body covered with waffle-shaped indentations applied on a lathe, leaving blank a small area in which are roughly incised the owner's initials, MA. A maker's mark, apparently IB above a pellet, is also stamped into the sheet, now very worn. Length: 1.2 cm. Form, facture and engraving suggest a late 17th C or possibly early 18th C date, but cannot be proven to be pre- 1706 and may not therefore fall within the scope of the Treasure A…

Post medieval silver(?) thimble made from sheet with turned over edge and slight dome. There are no decorative or other features to help date this object and the shape suggests a late date, post 1707, and that this may be a liner for a now missing thimble, possibly 19th Century. The find dates to later than 1707 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996. Dr Dora Thornton, Curator of Renaissance Collections The British Museum

Potential Treasure find: Silver Thimble (2005 T553) The thimble is very hard to analyse or date given that it is squashed out of shape, form being the most useful indicator of date. It might consequently be medieval or alternatively (and in my view more likely) 18th Century. I therefore suggest that it should be regarded as undiagnostic and removed from the Treasure process.

A silver thimble with waffle-shaped indentations but with pattern of linked cables left plain; plain band at part of the rim and plain disc at central point of dome. The thimble is in excellent condition, apart from one scratch running around it just below the dome. Given the regularity and depth of the indentations, the thimble may have been made on a lathe rather than punched by hand. Unmarked. Length approx 2.9 cm. Silver thimbles were used increasingly by the European nobility and gentry during the 17th Century but surviving examples are rare given that thimbles were much used and…
