Antique 14k Sterling Thimble Ketchum and McDougall
A gorgeous antique thimble in sterling silver and 14k gold. This 1880s sewing collectible was crafted by Ketchum and MacDougall, Brooklyn, NY.
We have only done a light hand polishing and it looks great. This thimble is featured on page 74 (number 51) in Antique & Collectible Thimbles and Accessories by Averil Mathis.
This antique thimble stands 7/8" tall. It is marked 14k for gold purity on the lower gold portion of the thimble. It has been safely tested to be so. It is also marked with the #10. Inside the thimble the hallmark for Ketcham & McDougall is at the center with the word Sterling underneath. The body of the thimble is crafted in sterling silver.
