Two metal figural mechanical pencils showing today that were made in the shape of screws. Both made in England. The top piece was produced by Sampson Mordan. It features a one stage telescopic section. The lead is tip activated. The lower piece is a promotional pencil marked Newman & Field Ltd. of Birmingham. The N & F pencil was likely made for them as a giveaway to their better customers. Both items were produced in the 1880 - 1890 period. The Mordan length is 2 1/8 inches closed and 3 3/16 inches extended. The B & F length is a static 4 1/8 inches.
