Thimble, Sterling Silver, Simons Bros, Size 7


Simons Bros of Philadelphia, PA was started in 1839 by George Washington Simons, at that time, they were manufacturers of gold and silver thimbles and pencil cases.  The company grew rapidly from there, expanding to include many gold and silver items including (!) tooth and ear picks, earrings and finger rings.  This thimble is rather plain and utilitarian, it has one large panel meant for engraving initials which has been left blank.  The size and the word “sterling” are on the panel.  There are no punctures and it’s not out of round.  The hallmark is visible in the top of the thimble.
