This is a fantastic Victorian era (c1871) gold-filled telescoping mechanical pencil. It operates by pulling the top end to extend the pencil in both directions for use. The pencil has a top ring for attaching the pencil to a chain or chatelaine. The barrel is made of French ivory (celluloid) with the upper extension showing an engine turned detail. The upper extension is marked: W? PATd OCT 17 71.

The pencil measures about 3 3/8 inches when extended and about 1 3/4 inches when closed. Excellent condition, with a slight crack to the French ivory.
