Very Large Vintage Sterling Silver Thimble Flowers & Scrolls

Material:  Sterling Silver

Hallmark:  Taxco 925

Maker:  Taxco

Size:  apx. 10, Height ~ 1 &  3/16th inches

Quantity:  1

This vintage hand made sterling silver thimble was made in Taxco, Mexico, where silver has been manufactured for hundreds and hundreds of years.
This vintage thimble dates to apx. c. 1950 - 60’s.  It is quite large and features a very nice applied repeating stylized floral and foliage design, accented with fine punch work and applied scrolls.  Please note the quality of the applied work.  Unlike many Mexican thimbles, especially modern (1970’s to present) the applied wire work on this thimble is very fine, even and symmetrical.  The cap is also very well done.  Additionally this vintage thimble has very nice, well executed hand punch work which is not often seen, even on older pieces such as this example.

The thimble is clearly marked inside near lower rim as to origin and material, however we do not see an indication as to size, but estimate it to be apx. a 10.

This sewing ~ quilting item is in exceptionally nice vintage estate condition.  It is free of holes, dents or any other kind of problems. The fancy applied and punch work  pattern design remains very defined.  It has never been monogrammed  A very nice, large, older hand wrought sterling silver thimble.
