Victorian silver spirit beaker/tot, in the form of a very large thimble. This wonderfully crafted piece is typical of the humour of the times, when folk often used a thimble to measure out a tot of alcohol. This over-size measure is the joke! The beaker is decorated as a thimble and bears the motto "just a thimblefull" in raised letters. Great quality.
London. 1876. Richard Loewe Henry.
