MS716 GPO Telephone Dialer Pencil.

Date: c1930s

Size: Length - 139mm.

A little bit of fun here - a very unusual Catalin bakelite pencil with a knobby end designed for operating a telephone dial.  It is in the lovely orange colour, with minimal discolouration.  It has a "GPO" imprint - a very similar shade of yellow/orange was used for the "Post Office Telephones" department of the GPO un until the 1970s, so this is very much in company colours.  It is in very good condition with just some discolouration at the brass point.  The point can be twisted to extend and retract the 1.18mm lead.  I have fitted a fresh lead into the mechanism so it is all ready to go.  

I have fully serviced this pencil.  It works perfectly.

An interesting advertising pencil and one I have never seen an example of before.
