Today's posting is a silver figural mechanical pencil produced by Sampson Mordan of England. The piece possibly represents Fagin, the Dickens character. Circa 1880 - 1890. The material is silver. The writing section pulls out telescopically from the base. Without the ring assembly, the piece measures 1 3/8 inches long in the closed position and 2 1/2 inches in length extended.
