Thimbles have the practical use of preventing hurting yourself while sowing. They have also been given for centuries as keepsakes to people as a token of love or as good luck. This porcelain thimble has been designed with a Celtic Cross.
The Celtic Stone High Cross is a popular image in Christian artwork but just as its name entails its appearance goes back further than Christianity. The four arms were interpreted as being those of the four elements; fire air earth and water or as the four directions of a compass. To Irish Catholics the circle represents Christ's halo or the endlessness of his love.
This thimble is a classic token of affection and would make an excellent addition to your home.
