Marked on the inside of the thimble with BONE CHINA MADE IN ENGLAND. Would make a lovely addition to your souvenir thimble collection. Excellent condition. Gold trim around the base. Perfect thimble for collectors of European castles.
A castle dating from the 15th century, Ripley Castle, has been the home of the Ingilby family for 700 years. The present owner is Sir Thomas Ingilby, 6th Baronet (see Ingilby Baronets), the 28th generation. The castle, which has a priest hole, is open for public tours. The landscaped castle grounds and ornamental lakes are also open to the public. http://www.ripleycastle.co.uk/
