Copper thimble. Unknown material inside (avec mud ). Looks like a later period one so maybe 19th century.
It's been suggested that it's a piece of porous material that would have been used to mix paint of some sort inside the thimble which sounds very possible. Anyone know which profession may have used such a technique? Or was it a common practice?
