This little guy really intrigued me when I found it with our Estate Sale items. All the females in my family had done seamstress work of some type or another, but I'd never seen anything as awesome as this cloisonne thimble and its specialty treasure case. I love cloisonne items so it (and a buddy one shown separately) really needed to come home with me for awhile. The case does open & close and the hinge and handle do work. They look a bit rough, but they work well.
The item is very well constructed. I was surprised that the case with thimble weighs a solid 1.3 oz. It is 1 1/8" x 3/4" x 2".
If you are seeking mint condition, please look elsewhere. If you are seeking a pre-loved item that would probably be met with surprise and be appreciated with continuing use and attention - give it a try.
Most of our jewelry is from Estate Sale items. We consider them to be unique treasures with special history. We work to carefully clean them appropriately to assure each setting is solid and to represent them correctly to the best of our ability. Please do remember, though, that these are pre-owned/pre-loved and may show some wear. We take pride in being able to 're-home' them.
Thank you for visiting this listing. If you are interested in multiple items, please let me know so we can coordinate correct shipping.
