This Edwardian blue Enamel pencil pendant is so sweet! The outside of the pendant features Enamel with the prettiest 'blue de France' colour and dainty polka dots, but this piece has more than meets the eye...
Inside the piece lies a retractable pencil, which would most likely have been worn with a pocket watch as a fob. A quirky piece like this is sure to set your jewellery collection apart from all others, and she'd make a great conversation starter at a dinner party!

VERY GOOD. A stunning Edwardian blue Enamel pencil pendant in very good condition! This piece has a stunning Guilloche Enamel exterior which has kept immaculately well, polka dots and all. The pencil retracts with ease and has kept its shape tremendously well, it even has lead inside which you can write with! The Gold tone metal has kept a pretty lustre over the years, although the top does have some minor wear.
