This is a charming and small chatelaine pencil of gilt metal. It has a carrying ring at one end and the barrel has some fine patterning. There is a slide which can be pushed down to reveal a presumed holder for a lead, but this appears to be more for show than use, as there is no apparent aperture. The condition is very good for age. This tiny little pencil would be appropriate for a fashion doll or added to a dainty appropriate chatelaine. Length closed with ring 2 ins (5cm). Weight less than 1 gram.
