14 Karat Gold Mechanical Pencil By Mabie Todd & Co New York:
For sale is a wonderful 14 karat gold tested mechanical pencil by Mabie, Todd & Co of New York. Approximately 4 1/4" long and 11.9 grams in total. Mabie, Todd & Company was formed in New York City in 1860, as partnership of John Mabie and Edward Todd. The company made many ornate and beautiful writing instruments, including gold pens, which would today be called nibs, early patent pencils, dip pen holders, and pencil cases. These were jewelry quality instruments made from gold, silver, hard rubber, ivory, and exotic woods. An early advertisement from 1869 even lists toothpicks. Marked on the black portion Mabie, Todd & Co. Very good condition. The pencil was tested but I don't know how accurate the test are. See us in Brimfield at the Brimfield Barn in July.
