Desirable and rare Vintage Egyptian Revival mechanical pencil from the early 1920s. This is a gorgeous example of the Egyptian items that were produced after the opening of Tut's tomb in 1922. This figural beauty features a Pharoah's sarcophagus and is made of heavy silver. The features and hieroglyphic symbols, as well as a winged figure of Isis on the front are done in enamel. The propelling pencil works perfecting and extends out of the bottom when the top ring and mounting is pulled up. The piece is quite heavy and measures 2 3/4" long (with bale) by 3/4" wide by 1/2" deep. The ring is marked 600 for silver content. Condition is excellent. I have had a few of these in the past but never one as nice and heavy as this one. It is wonderful.
