Thimble https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/medieval/thimbles/thimble-49448.html Thu, 15 Oct 2015 00:00:00 GMT Thimbles Thimble  
Description: An incomplete late medieval thimble with a thimble-shaped sleeve inserted into it, probably as a makeshift repair before the damage became too severe. The thimble, of which less than half survives, has small manually produced indentations overall. The thimble-shaped sleeve is manually indented only on the crown, supporting the view that it was made solely for the purpose of effecting a repair. It also seems to have been fabricated from sheet, rather than cast, as the image appears to show evidence of a longitudinal seam.
