Size: Length - 113mm.
This pencil is part of a consignment of old stock pencils I recently purchased. I think they are probably all from the 1950s or possibly slightly earlier, and all apparently unused. None of the pencil appear to have a manufacturer's name on them, but many share unmistakeable design similarities and they all appear to have the same propel-only internal mechanism, so my best guess is that they are possibly left-over stock from a maker that went out of business in the 1950s when many traditional pen and pencil makers were finding it harder and harder to sell their products under the competition from the new-fangled ballpoints.
This pencil has a black cone with a beautiful black, red and blue marbled casein barrel and crown. It has a very pleasingly shaped pocket clip with a spade-shaped terminal, which is bright and shiny and appears to be gold plated. The point looks like it is gold plated as well, as does the central barrel band. The pencil has its original 1.18mm lead in it and propels the lead at a twist of the crown.
This pencil works perfectly.
A very interesting survivor, and in lovely condition too.
