  Today is a figural mechanical pencil disguised as an ear of corn. It is unmarked, likely made in England or the U.S. Material is silver. Circa 1880 - 1890. The writing tip is deployed by pulling the ring out and simultaneously, by magic, pushing the tip to the writing position. The pencil without the ring assembly is 1 inch long closed and 3 1/16 inches extended.
