Item details

This is an antique thimble by Charles Horner. The thimble is Dorcas No 9 which is the marks it carries alongside Charles Horner's initials.

These thimbles were created using a technique of steel core and layers of silver, so they do not carry a full silver hallmark due to the steel. Mr Horner developed this technique as he found silver didn't have the necessary strength on its own for a working thimble. Without a full mark dating can be tricky but the patent was started in 1884 and Mr Horner stopped making them in 1947 so it will fall between these dates.

Condition

The thimble is in excellent condition. It has been a used item but any needle imprints haven't gone through.

FAQs

As my items are often fragile, they are packaged using a combination of strong cardboard boxes, packing peanuts and bubble wrap.
