19th Century French 18ct Gold Thimble With Chased Decoration
This is a charming 19th Century French 18ct Gold Thimble. It has a chased decoration with a scrolled edge and beading with an eagles head impressed by the rim. The practise of an eagle’s head being stamped on the piece started in 1838 and indicates that the Thimble is of French origin and contains a minimum of 18k Gold. It is in excellent overall condition with some minor scratches only visible under a loupe and a small dint on the inside which does not detract from its beauty.
