Two sterling mechanical pencils produced in Birmingham, England. The cylindrical piece is twist activated and made by Francis Webb. Hallmarked 1894. The squarish piece is slider button activated and maker marks are wear obliterated. Hallmarked 1906-1907. The new stock, standard size wooden toothpick is shown for size comparison. The smooth piece is 1 inch long in the closed position and 1 1/2 inches long ready to write. The chased piece is 1 9/16 Inches long closed and 2 1/8 inches long opened. Exceptionally tiny and very well made.
