Lop Sided Silver Racket Pencil by Samson and Mordan c1878

An extremely early novelty propelling pencil by Samson and Mordan & Co measuring 5.2cms when open. Interesting detail including a leather strip, depicted in silver to protect the stringing to the top of the head and a leather butt end finished with a tapered end in silver of course. The throat has wire whipping below an early throat piece. S. Mordan & Co is stamped the side of the handle, below there is an early registration mark. It is so small it is impossible to read. The pencil is in excellent condition.
