Item details

Vintage sterling silver thimble. Manufactured by the Henry Griffith & Sons company of Birmingham, England. The HG&S sterling company operated from 1850 to 1985, manufacturing fine jewellery and wares including cigarette cases, brooches, cuff links, signet rings, wedding bands, serviette rings and, of course, thimbles. The thimble features a delicate stippling design along the top dome, with detailed flowers along with middle. Across the lowest portion of the thimble is a high-polish finish, stamped with the manufacturers marks. The thimble is in reasonable condition, given its age. It features some patina, a small pin hole in the top area and it's opening is slightly out of round (both are visible in the images).
