For your consideration is a vintage Art Deco & YZ Style Bakelite & Nut Body Bird Shaped Pencil Holder. It is marked on the bottom: Japan. The head, beak, tail & feet are made of Bakelite and the birds body is made of a polished nut. The bird has a hole on its back where a white & red plastic pencil on a chain is inserted. The bird sits on top of a painted black wooden base. Absolutely darling & unique! There is still some lead in the pencil, also. It is in very good, vintage, collectible & usable condition. Approx.: 3 1/2"T X 3"L (Base).
