    American Silver Propelling Pencil c1880

    This classic early American pear-shaped racket has a smallish head, concave wedge, and a handle in square form. Sterling is stamped to the side of the handle, below which is a cipher denoting the maker. I have been unable to find the maker’s name yet. Measuring 6.8cms when extended the pencil retracts smoothly. Condition is excellent.

    Provenance – The K.B. Book of Pencils – Illustrated in Bull, The K.B. Collection of Pencils – Private Publication 2012 Page 136.
