For my next trick…. I first thought that this was a Victorian Thimble but have been advised by a fellow collector that this is in actual fact a false thumb used in a magic trick to snuff out a cigarette. It was used to wow the crowds, used over the magician’s thumb to put out the flame then removed quickly to reveal his real undamaged thumb. That’s Magic!rnI have pictured it on a very large male prosthetic finger to show its scale [finger not included]. The Thumb measures 30mm long and 22mm in diameter. A wonderful collectors item.
