A rare and interesting novelty antique Propelling Pencil, made by the renowned silversmith:  Sampson Mordan.    The pencil is in the form of a fan which opens with a slide action to reveal the pencil end.  The silver is beautifully engraved.  When the pencil is fully extended the mark for Sampson Mordan is revealed along with a diamond registration mark giving the exact date of 18th November 1879. The pencil is not hallmarked, however, has been tested and is silver. 

A wonderful item, fabulous for a collector and in super antique collector's condition.
