This rare, quality miniature propelling pencil was produced in England during the late 19th century, circa 1890. The novelty propelling pencil is modelled as a hand bell, the bell being made from untested white metal and tuned wood handle. The stained/ebonized wood handle has a working twist mechanism to reveal the retractable pencil lead holder. This is a fantastic little item; it is even complete with its original ring holder allowing it to be attached to a chain/chatelaine/ watch fob.

Measuring: Length 1 3/8 inch (3.5 CM). Length when extended 1 7/8 inch (4.8 cm).

Condition: Good working order. Historic thin, stable 0.25 inch hair line to the wooden. Some very light wear to white metal surface.
