Sampson Mordan of England produced this figural mechanical pencil during the late 1840 - early 1850 period. Very nice gold finish. The tip extension mechanism operates in a channel with push / pull activation button. Piece is 2 1/2 inches long in the carry position and 3 inches long with the writing tip extended.
