I believe the wood is Beech, the condition is wonderful, the purpose is very practical.
Measuring: 4 3/4" long, the finish on this item is great, there is some drying out at the slit where the pencil fits into, but very minimal.
A pencil extender you might ask?? Well, when you were nearing the end of the pencil and could no longer write comfortably you would slide this into the extender and continue on. I don't know if there was a band that fit around the end but this one does not have it. I have slid art pencils and regular pencils in and they stay snug.
This came into use near the beginning of the 20th Century.

Additional return information
I will gladly accept returns if an item has been received broken, cracked or not working. If any item arrives broke or abused, unless specified in the listing to have a flaw, we will issue a credit for the product once it has been inspected. The item must be returned or have proof that it's on it's way, no later than 3 days from receiving item. Product credits do not apply to shipping. Exchanges are not offered as I generally only have one of each item so there is nothing to exchange it for. Please inspect the items carefully, I try to add as many pictures to insure you see the item from all angles as well as descriptions that go over and above most to explain what I see. Please understand these items are vintage and have been passed around for many years, once in a while something slips by.
Vintage, antique treasures, that's why you love them.
We here at "Open- Twenty- Four- Seven" look forward to meeting up with you on Etsy.
