Ladies retractable pencil, plated brass - probably nickel-silver, silver colour. Ideal for hand-bag use. Pencil lead can be replaced, lead fits into small fitting which is split to allow lead to be gripped. The shaft is very nicely knurled and can be twisted anti-clockwise to retract the lead into the shaft so that the pocket or hand-bag cannot be marked.
