Antique Gold Cased Turquoise Propelling Pencil Circa 1890

Collections: Sold Archive

Dating to the late Victorian era to perhaps the early 20th century this fine example of Victorian craftsmanship is simply charming.

Designed as a propelling pencil and crafted in gold cased style quite typical of the era, with fine engraved detailing throughout.

Studded with round Turquoise cabochons to the slider and to the top a a pale blue paste stone.

Complete with her sliding bale ring this little charmer can easily accommodate a chain and worn as a pendant.

Quite remarkably she retains an original piece of lead however we cannot confirm how long this is!

Retracted she measures 4.8cm and extended a lovely 6.3m.


6.3cm Extended / 4.8cm Retracted

3.5 Grams


Very good antique condition.  All Turquoise original, no re-glues.  Slides perfectly.  Original sliding ring and bale.

Please note boxes and chains are for display only unless otherwise stated.
