This beautiful thimble was made by Simons Bros. of Philadelphia, PA. The company founded in 1839 by George Washington Simons, at that time, they were manufacturers of gold and silver thimbles and pencil cases. The company grew rapidly from there, expanding to include many gold and silver items including (!) tooth and ear picks, earrings and finger rings.
The thimble has a very delicate design around the bottom, almost like lace! It is engraved with the initials “M.M.D.” and the word “Sterling” with the size 11. There are no punctures, it is hallmarked in the apex. The case does show signs of age on the outside, inside the velvet remains intact and vibrant.
