Victorian Silver & Agate Pencil With Registered Opening.
Made circa 1857.
Length with pencil out 11.5" (4.5cm).
This is a rare pencil with an unusual method of operation.
To open and close it you must pull the sleeve out, twist it,
and then the pencil will either stay out when you pull the sleeve back
or be pulled back into the body of the pencil, and thus protected from damage.
