Item details

Very nice Victorian-era (early 1900s) sterling silver thimble. The outside is marked with its size (7) and is inscribed “Pauline” (my grandmother, born 1895) on the panel. It has a thick lip filled with a wave pattern. On the inside, it is marked STERLING and hallmarked by Ketcham & McDougall Company of New York (nicknamed “The Thimble House”, 1832 to 1932), known for their quality craftsmanship and design. They stamped (rather than engraved) their mark, which would explain why the mark is so worn. The thimble is ¾ inches high and weighs 5.3 grams. It’s in excellent antique condition; no damage, wear, holes, or dings that I can see. And it hasn't been cleaned or polished for at least 40 years.
