Last week was really busy for me at work and this weekend I've spent some time with my grandson so work on the sewing box has been very minimal.
What i have done is taken a photograph of the small treasure that will sit in the main compartment of the box and also a shot of it in its place.
The thimble was a metal detecting find by myself last year and is dated to around the
14th - 15th Century it is all complete with no damage at all and was cast in bronze.
This particular thimble was almost certainly made for a woman as the size is quite small
( it just about fits on the tip of my little finger ) and the design became known as a beehive thimble obviously because of the shape. It truly is an amazing little treasure and each time i hold it i often ponder who the last person was to use it and what the item was they were working on that required them to have this little wonder on one of there fingers. The thimble has been cleaned and protected but still retains some small amounts of soil in the indents.
A warm welcome to my new followers and many thanks for finding my journal interesting enough to follow.
Have a wonderful week everyone. Tony.
