Victorian and early 20th century novelty Propelling Pencils with Egyptian influences made in the form of Pharaoh's, Mummies or Sarcophagi are quite common. The majority however were made in Continental silver or other base materials, but this example made, or at least retailed by Sampson Mordan is very scarce.
