Mordan slider pencil in excellent condition. No dents or dings and the makers imprint is crisp and clear. The “S. Mordan & Co. Makers & Patentees” on the barrel dates this pencil between 1830 and 1845. The white cornelian seal has been engraved with the image of a scottish thistle and what looks like the royal rose? I am sure it is solid gold (although not yet tested).
