A Victorian era propelling lead pencil featuring silver toned metal. There is nice detailing on the pencil end and a purple rhinestone jewel cap at the other. This is fairly heavy in weight for a smaller writing instrument indicating that is is made very well.
Marked with England on the very tip, we do not know the exact manufacturer. We would place this in the late 1890s to just past the turn of the Century.
Measures a smaller 4 5/8 inches long and does work! This has lead in it and writes nicely. Great to use as a quick writing instrument in your purse.
