Item details

A fine, banded agate, silver plated propelling pencil

Late Victorian Early Edwardian

Telescopic Action

A very nice propelling pencil, with some attractive decorative features. The case of the pencil, is hexagonal in shape. This is engine turned. The top of the pencil, flares outwards more than most, and, is decorated with a series of agapanthus leaves. Crowning the top of the pencil, is a polished banded agate. This is bevelled at the edges. The slider of the pencil, is also decorated with agapanthus leaves, a nice decorative touch

The pencil, opens and closes with a slide or telescopic action. This is working well. The top unscrews and is a storage compartment for additional leads.

There is some tarnish in areas of the barrel or case, but, nothing major. There are no leads in the pencil.

Measurements are 4 3/4 " when open 3 3/4 when closed. The top is 7/16 " in diameter.
( 11.5 cm long, 9.2 closed and 1.2 cm diameter at the top )
