CR056 The Croxley Pencil.

Date: c1930s?

Size: Length - 5 1/16 inches.

This is a good sized  Croxley pencil in a very nice green and black marbled celluloid with gold filled trim.  As usual, I have given this pen a thorough going over and the only damage that I was able to see was a little plating wear to the cap band.  The pencil has a good original gloss, with no noticeable scratching or surface scuffing at all.  It is in the more unusual "streamlined" style, and reminds me a little of the Sheaffer Balance designs from the 1930s.  The tapered cap is fitted with a gold filled pocket clip that has an attractive fluted design down the stem.   It has "12ct GF" imprinted at the side of the shoulder.  The barrel has two imprints - one saying "MADE IN GT BRITAIN", the other "THE CROXLEY PENCIL/ A DICKINSON PRODUCT".  Both are crisp and clear.  This is a propel - repel pencil and works by twisting the cap.  The cap will also pull off and below is the original eraser holder, though the eraser has long gone.  Below this is a space for storing spare 1.18mm leads.  There are none there at present, but I have installed a fresh lead into the mechanism so it is all ready to go.

I have fully serviced this pencil.  It works very well.
