Victorian Sterling Silver Sewing Thimble Owl Figure Enamel Handmade. Shipped with USPS First Class. This is a beautiful thimble that someone loved and used a lot. It was originally gold plated and there is still some plating left in a couple spots. The main metal is silver. There is no mark. I estimate this to be circa 1850. Back then it took a lot of effort, time, and resources to make this by hand; the blacksmith would have to make the basic shape, then someone else has to add the enamel, and so on. Message me if you know more.
