Antique Victorian Carved Tagua Nut Thimble Spool Holder Ketcham McDougall Sterling Silver Timble

$ 135.00

Antique Victorian Carved Tagua Nut (Vegetable Ivory) Thimble / Spool Holder with Sterling Silver Ketcham & McDougall Thimble. The carved nut has an ornate design with little holes on the sides. I think the holes were to pull the thread thru. Screw off the lid to find an antique Ketcham & McDougall sterling thimble size 9.

The case holder measures 2.5" high by 1.5" wide. The thimble is marked sterling with the MCD maker's mark. The thimble and holder are both in very good condition. The thimble is damage free. The holder has a few chips on the edges of the base. No other damage or issues. A wonderful antique sewing treasure for your collection or to give as a gift.
