Fully hallmarked for the year 1900 this beautiful sterling silver pencil pendant is a fine collector's piece, and an all round exquisite example of Victorian craftsmanship.
With every inch intricately engraved and embossed in feminine floral detailing this miniature pencil might have been worn on a Victorian lady's chatelaine or guard chain but she is now a necklace pendant that you can adore and wear daily. Fully functioning, she is as pretty as she is practical!
The top of this lovely silver pencil is set with an amethyst seal stone and a sliding ring pushes up and down to retract the detachable silver nozzle that holds the pencil lead. A sliding reeded collar at the top has a heavy duty silver jump ring all ready to attach to your favourite necklace chain!
Perfect for layering with other antique pendants, this beautiful piece will make a unique gift for a writer friend or loved one!
