Antique Fairchild Telescopic Pencil

Antique Fairchild Telescopic Pencil


Here is a beautiful and rare little telescopic pencil by the collectible company Fairchild. 


 This uncommon little treasure looks like a beautifully painted tube, but it is actually an Antique propelling pencil. The propelling element on this piece is in need of repair (a solder) in order for the pencil to retract properly, so this little enamel treasure is being sold as-is. However, this would make a gorgeous little pendant. The pencil's body features a hand-painted enamel image of a woman harvesting wheat in a blue and pink dress. The painting is lovely. She even has a shadow. The background is blue with puffy clouds, fading to grassy path. The miniature painting pops against bright gold-tone metal. This would look amazing worn as a long pendant over a sweater or added to a chain. The top of the pencil features a chased, textured design at the crown with a bale, ready to add to a chain of your choice. These enamel-painted pencils are hard to come by, and Fairchild is a highly collectible brand, and this would make a beautiful pendant. Ready to wear, gift, or collect. 


Length: 1.8in (46mm) bale included in the measurement

width 7.7 mm

Unmarked, untested

Late 1800s - 1910

As Is, selling as a pendant

  • Condition Report

They are an essential part of the description. As part of our commitment to your positive experience, in this section, we list any condition issues we see, however minor they may be. As always, feel free to reach out with questions at any time. 

    * As mentioned, the propelling element is in need of a solder, so this lovely pencil is being sold as a pendant/Victorian collectible. Outside of the broken propelling mechanism, the pen is in nice antique condition. A barely noticeable hairline crack is visible in the enamel with a loupe. Some surface wear to metal. One fleabite, 1mm. Overall very sweet.

The Condition Report

An item must be 100 years old or older to be considered antique. This means many antiques may have age-related wear. We chalk it up to character and love it, but it is essential that we fully describe any wear, no matter how minor. Each piece is carefully inspected, tested, and fully described before it lands in the shop.
