Belle Époque Jewelled Pencil Case. This sparkling beauty dates between 1880 & 1890 and is a masterpiece of gold, rose-cut diamonds and cabochon cut rubies, emeralds, sapphires & an opal, British. Though quite sceptre-like, it is actually a case for a pencil, it is engraved with a rose, a thistle and a shamrock--emblems of the United Kingdom. Even after over a century, the case still contains two spare nibs and three pencil lead fragments, amazing.
