A silver porte crayon engraved with a bright cut leaf and bud pattern. The long silver barrel would have held a stick of graphite called a wad. It has a ring slider attached to an inner brass tube.

The seal end has some light scratching in the form of a star- possibly an attempt to make a home made seal?


In excellent condition although it stops short of the end of the barrel ( see main photo ).

13 cm long ( 5 inches )
