it's a small....thimble

Pewter thimble
I must admit, other than seeing them used as household objects for mice in cartoons, I don't believe I've ever seen a thimble utilized other than as a collector's item.  And I doubt that this great piece from Walt Disney World was ever used by a mouse or a seamstress.
This little guy is 3/4" tall and 3/4" wide at the base.  Standard thimble size, I presume.  The top has an excellently detailed curved Big D/Globe Head logo over Cinderella Castle covered in a clear enamel.  The inside is stamped with Walt Disney Productions.
