Sweet solid silver chatelaine pencil, toothpick or needle case pendant - Victorian era French piece in a Japonesque motif with little bug / dragonfly with cherry blossoms and bark or water texture below, it is decorated this way on both sides. NOTE - there is no pencil. It is very small so it may not have ever been a pencil but rather a chatelaine needle case. The piece measures about 2 1/2 inches in length with the loop extended. Chain in photos is not included but I do have some delicate sterling chains in 18 and 24 inches if you'd like to add one to your order.
Marked with the boar's head mark for French solid silver items on the case and the insert. Please note that all my pieces are in estate condition. There is no pencil although I don't know if it originally was a pencil. Surface wear and scratching from use and polish over the years but has a nice patina and I don't see any glaring wear. Overall it has held its shape very well.
But Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. I would be delighted if you'd follow me in my store.
