This figural thimble holder is adorable and I've never seen anything like it. A realistic oak leaf has been formed of gilded brass and the stem has a little ivory knob. A velvet thimble post is in the middle and sitting on that is a carved ivory thimble.
The thimble is about an American child's size 4 (12.5 mm diameter opening). It is in perfect condition though the ivory has a couple of natural flaws. There is a darker line in the grain on the side and the top has the dark round mark that occurs at the center of the tusk. These are not damage. The leaf is also in great condition with no dents or damage and only a bit of rubbing. It measures 3" long x 1 1/8" wide.
