COMMENTS: This Victorian telescoping pencil was likely worn on a chatelaine and used for dance cards or other more mundane daily tasks of the era. The design is a beautifully embossed baroque style and could easily be worn today as a pendant. This pencil does have it's lead so is ready for practical use as well. When the pencil is fully extended there is an area for personalization (engraving) though it was never engraved.
