Antique Victorian 9ct Gold Propelling Pencil With Amethyst Gemstone (Code A930)
An antique Victorian 9ct Gold pencil. It has a sliding action with the tip able to retract into the body to keep it safe. When in the open position there is a propelling action by rotating the end piece to advance the lead. The body has a collar with a jump ring to allow it to be attached to a fob chain or chatelain. The end with the amethyst unscrews to store lead. The end is set with an amethyst which is flat polished to the top and cut below. The cut is particularly effective as it manages to refract a lot of light despite being deep set. The body of the pencil has bright cutting. There are no marks but it tests as 9 carat gold. Please note there will be non gold components as part of the mechanics inside the pencil.
