Antique Victorian solid sterling silver propelling pencil. Cylindrical shaped body with engine turned decoration around the outside. At the bottom end is a plain stepped band & at the top is a circular shaped plain removable screw top with an inset milky jade gemstone cap seal on the end. Inside the top is a small revolver/pepper pot compartment for storing spare leads. In the centre is a sliding band which extends & retracts the internal pencil mechanism.

A very nice early clean example, lovely collectors item.
