The Celebrated Duke's Scissor Thimble.... Cuts the thread.. Saves Time, Teeth & Temper ..... Warranted ..... Silver Plated ..... the original price on the box was 10 cts. each.
This thimble is aluminum, with a very thin coating of silver plate... it is a size 7, has never been used, came from the original box shown in the picture. I'm sorry but, this is only a picture of the box. I do not have the box. (The photo is included) On the thimble around the bottom is * DUKE* PAT. MAY 15, 1900 * 7 * on the top is a carbide looking round disc with four sharp blades ... to cut your sewing thread ... it is approximately 3/4'' tall and 11/16'' at the inside opening.... These thimbles are quite rare.
