This is one of my small collection of treasured miniature propelling pencils. It is a tiny metal pencil with a classic Art Deco design on the body. It is circa 1920s and a working chatelaine pencil. This is one of my own collection of vintage pieces - every now & then, I list one of these little treasures!

It's in perfect condition and fully loaded with pencil lead for your jotting on the go! It's a propelling pencil so when you twist the bottom of the pencil, a little lever on the inside brings up the lead. If you need further refills you can purchase them here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/107319696/pencil-leads-for-victorian-chatelaine For future orders, the code for lead to fit this pencil is CE7194.

The pencil measures just under 2.5 inches (63 mm) in length (not including the fob) and hangs from a rather lengthy 31 inch total length (79 cm) antique silver 'Figaro' chain which is finished with a lobster clasp. This length is ideal if you'd like it to hang low on you (so you can also use it whilst wearing it). I'm happy to shorten it for you if needed - just leave a note to indicate preferred chain length.

It makes a beautiful and useful pendant and is very collectible!

This arrives gift boxed.
