French Antique 19th Century Silver Pencil CaseFrench Antique 19th Century Silver Pencil CaseFrench Antique 19th Century Silver Pencil CaseFrench Antique 19th Century Silver Pencil Case

This nineteenth century French pencil and case is unmarked but tests as 800-900 silver quality.

It measures 3 and 7/16” (8.8cms) long and 9/16” (1.4cms) across the widest part. It weighs 8.3 grams.

The tapered case is embellished in the classical style. It has lines running down it with little bows at intervals and trailing flowers at the base. In the centre is a blank oval for a monogram. Around it is a garland of oak and laurel leaves tied with a bow and then tiny stars over the background. The design is the same on both sides.

The top is plain silver and pulls open to reveal the Conte pencil within. This is in remarkably good condition.

This beautiful and quite rare piece is wonderfully tactile. It is in excellent antique condition and will arrive in a gift box.
