Thimble with Ivory Case – Ann Maria Burt Smeed

The thimble pictured here belonged to Ann Maria Burt Smeed, my mother’s beloved Granny Smeed. I am now the custodian of this family memento. The thimble is stored in a tiny ivory case with a screw top. I don’t know the age of this thimble and case but Granny Smeed died in 1943 and the case shows sufficient wear to indicate that she owned and used it for many years.
