A very small criterium or antique mechanical pencil, of the "Châtelaine" type, with a ring to hang from a chain and easily carry everywhere with you. It is made of solid brass with a decorative black and green marbled celluloid coating. The tarnishing of the brass and some signs of wear betray the age of this item from the beginning of the 20th century which is still in very good working condition. No visible manufacturer's mark. It comes with a small Dixon Ticonderoga wooden case complete with 24 No. 2 HB replacement leads.
