A very handsome Georgian solid silver early Propelling Pencil.  This heavy gauge silver pencil has a neat engine turned pattern to the body of the silver with a nicely patterned silver band around the centre which acts as a slider. There is also a dragon engraved seal on the top, to use with wax to seal letters and documents.  Full hallmarks are visible on one side for London 1824.

A wonderful early item; used long before lead refills were invented, contains an actual pencil rather than lead refill, which  slides in and out.

Condition:  In great condition, especially considering the age and use. (There is a very tiny split to the rim where the pencil slides out, commensurate with the age and mentioned for accuracy only)

Hallmarks:  London 1824

Measurements:  Length:  11 cm    Weight: 28 grams

Weights and measurements are approximate.
