Whilst I am unaware of the age or origin of this thimble I consider it a treasure.
As you can see it is quite well used and it fits perfectly so it is a very useful addition to my sewing kit.
My mother claimed it for me when her oldest sister passed away in 2005 aged 90.
For reasons only past family members know this sister did not grow up with her siblings, but she did get to know a lot of them and the extended family in the last 15 years of her life.
I never met this lady, but from the stories I heard and this small reminder I understand she was quite an accomplished needlewoman.
I guess stitching and sewing really is in my genetic make up.
