This is an appealing chatelaine pencil. It has been designed as a pendant pencil as it has movable ring slide with attached ring. The pencil is opened by moving a slide to reveal the holder for a lead. There is a screw-off top that reveals a space for lead storage and this top is adorned with chasing and an engraved citrine seal with initials. The pencil is marked London and tests for 10 carat gold, but is possibly gold-filled. The condition is very good for age although the end has rubbing. This would be a lovely addition to a collection of early pencils or to add to an appropriate chatelaine that is missing an appendage. Length closed 3.25 ins (8.2cm), length opened 4 ins (10.1cm). Weight 4 grams.
Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $26.25 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
