Here's a lovely old retractable pencil from the Art Nouveau era.

The piece is made from sterling silver and it is heavily engraved with a stunning floral motif. The flower is likely an iris (I could be wrong about this) with large petals and exquisite engraving throughout. It is a very heavy piece, tipping the scales at 21.4 grams.

The lead is still intact at the end. To write, simply twist the cylinder-shaped capsule above. Pencil was likely part of a chatelaine as there is a nice large silver jump ring attached at the top, which would easily accommodate a silver chain so you can wear it as a pendant if you wish.

Pendant measures 3&1/2" from the top of the ring, by 3/8" wide. As mentioned, weight is 21.4 grams.

Excellent condition. I could not find any damage, just slight signs of wear. There is a stamp just at the base of the pencil portion: "Sterling Silver."
