A beautiful solid sterling silver thimble holder. What we love especially about this thimble holder is its incredible realism. It is the size, shape and has the detail of a real walnut.
The walnut opens and, as you can see in the photo, there is a locking mechanism within so the holder won't accidentally fall open and drop the thimble inside. Interior well marked for Sterling Mexico, the eagle form Mexican hallmark 3 for Taxco, 1948-55. In great working condition! To open, just give it a little twist to loosen the lock/stop. 1 1/2"L X 1 3/8"W X 1 1/4H.
