Victorians loved their accoutrements to be both pretty and practical. This decadent antique pencil is encased in a sterling silver case with beautiful repoussé metal work embellishment, like the curling fronds of a fern. A faceted green glass gem that resembles a demantoid garnet is set in the end. The pencil lead is intact, this writing implement is ready and waiting for your words. An ideal graduation gift or the perfect love token for the writer in your life. Circa 1870.
