Josh Baker? – Steam Train

Two-ended combo, with pen sliding from one end and pencil from the other. German silver. Very intriguing barrel design as it shows a very early, mid 19th century steam engine & coal car, pulling what appears to be 3 passenger wagons. It is not in the best condition – barrel imprint is worn, the nib end is split, and the pencil tip has a slight compression to it (although the inner pencil mechanics are working). No other markings. A Josh Baker figural pencil (rifle/toothpick) in my collection has a very similar railway design; perhaps Baker was also the maker of this one?
