Item specifics

Used: An item that has been used previously. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of ... Read moreabout the condition
Type: Pens & Pencils
Vintage: Collectable/ Vintage Sub-Type: Mechanical Pencils

A decorative antique solid silver propelling pen and pencil with inset glittering stone incorporating a seal depicting a pigeon or bird carrying a letter.  The pencil works just as it should, by moving the tab up and down the pencil length, to extend and withdraw the lead end, and the pen by moving the decorative band up and down the length.  The very decorative seal end unscrews to reveal the pencil leads storage area.  There are three decorative bands around the length of the pencil and the remainder of the body of the pencil has an engine turned pattern.  I can find no makers name, although the quality of the pen / pencil is very good - the workmanship is intricate.  A sophisticated combined pen and pencil.

Length closed: 3.75 inches

Length Open: 4.5 inches

Weight: 16 grams (for information only, and not for scrap)
