Silver and copper alloy thimble. A conical domed thimble with silver (or silver-plated, as kindly suggested by the finder nd perhaps confirmed by magnified viewing) walls and a separate copper alloy top. The wall has a foot ring comprising paired incised lines with a gutter between them, which is repeated half way up the wall with the intervening zone left empty. Above this, finely machine stamped hexagonal pits appear as if rising in rows from left to right. Two horizontal rows of pits are carried over from the silver wall to the copper alloy cap of the thimble which - now - is other…

Silver thimble fragment. Part of the wall of a thimble made from sheet metal with a plain basal zone, above which the lower part of its wall is occupied by a series of vegetal curlicues and loops against a stippled ground, all framed by linear borders. The upper part of the wall bears machine stamped circular pits of diameter 0.7mm which appear as if rising in diagonal rows from right to left. The thin sheet metal used is typical of Victorian silver objects which, despite the intrinsic value of the material, are fairly common field finds, and which must therefore have been frequently…

Silver thimble. Conical domed thimble. The lower half of the wall is occupied by four plain grooves between finely billeted bands standing proud. The upper part bears a machine stamped pattern of closely spaced circular pits. These give out at the top which is now smooth, probably as an original feature, and now lightly dented. The finder kindly cites UKDFD no. 46096 in suggesting a post-medieval date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1775-1825. Diameter: 13.6mm, Height: 19.5mm, Thickness (wall): 0.3mm, Weight: 1.93gms.

Silver Thimble. Beaten sheet metal domed thimble, probably made on a former and machined. The lower half of the wall is plain, framed by paired sets of circumferential grooves above and below, which are each followed by three bands of probably rouletted closely spaced vertical slashes. The upper half of the wall bears close-spaced rectangular or rhomboid pits ascending in diagonal lines for fourteen circumferential rows. The top is plain save for turning lines indicating finishing on a lathe. Spots of rusty staining on the wall and top are presumably from an adjacent object, as there …

Silver Thimble. Conical thimble of beaten sheet metal; the object now lacks a top though the sharp edge to what remains suggest it may have been separately made and only recently detached. A double foot ring is formed by paired and finely rouletted lines, and a further pair of similarly spaced lines appears about half way up the wall. Between these borders, fine but intermittent stamps make up a curvilinear motif, possibly a running guilloche. The upper wall is occupied by about sixteen rows of probably machine stamped circular pits. There is the appearance of opposed vertical seams o…

Silver Thimble fragment. Probably machined thimble with a foot ring with a plain zone above and closely spaced oval pits in diagonal lines ascending leftwards, probably occupying two thirds of the wall. A set of worn hallmarks in the plain zone includes an anchor denoting the Birmingham assay office but the year stamp is illegible. The top of the thimble is lost and its upper walls are raggedly torn and perforated in one place. Now squashed. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1850-1900. Width: 23.0mm, Height: 20.7mm, Thickness (wall): 0.4mm, Weight: 2.46gms.

Silver Thimble. Sheet metal domed thimble beaten over a former. The lower wall bore a ground of closely spaced diagonal ridges, with a circumferential groove half way up the wall. Over this were soldered leaves and flowers, in an originally continuous band. The upper wall is occupied by fine machine stamped pits, which continue on a spiral arrangement on the domed top. Now crumpled. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1825-1875. Height: 22.6mm, Diameter (estimated): 18mm, Thickness (wall, clear of additional decoration): 0.6mm, Weight: 3.41gms.

Silver and Copper Alloy Thimble. Sheet metal thimble, probably made by hammering over a former, of conical form with a copper alloy top soldered onto the top. Decoration of the lower half of the wall comprises a series of leaves framed by and springing from tendrils of zig zag rockered work, all within paired band borders of finely punched or rouletted dots. The veins of the leaves are rendered by hand-punched slashes, with supplementary shading of finely spaced diagonal lines of smaller dots. The series is interrupted by a framed initial letter hand-inscribed in flowing calligraphic …

Silver Thimble. Cast open topped Thimble with a broad plain foot ring, a plain zone above divided by a circumferential ridge, and about 13 rows of closely spaced punched indentations. It is uncertain whether this was made as an open thimble or whether it was domed and has lost its top. Now squashed flat, damage which may have detached a top part if one was originally preswent. Suggested date: Modern, 1800-1900. Height: 20.7mm, Width: 23.5mm, Thickness (foot ring): 1.1mm, Weight (with some trapped soil): 3.60gms

Silver Thimble. Pressed metal conical thimble with rounded top. A scalloped base bears very fine indentations and a vegetal scroll is applied to thiszone. Above it a plain field bears further rouletted scrolls, probably again of a floral or vegetal design. Above this the upper half of the thimble bears closely spaced indentations, which continue onto the top in concentric rings. The sides of the thimble are dented, and about seven perforations carry through its upper indented sides. Suggested date: Modern, 1850-1900.

Silver Thimble or Sewing Ring. Cast conical open topped thimble. A foot-ring is formed by two circumferential rouletted bands. Above this, lentoid and swirling zones formed of round and oval punch marks leave an unbordered plain reserve as an undulating line, and a pelta-shaped plaque bordered by punchmarks. A double indented line above this feature separates lower decoration from further punched and plain areas where the scheme is here obscured by wear and damage. The finder reports his attempts at restoration and reshaping have left the object fragile. The object is (now?) unusual…
