original 19th century hand cut - SLATE PENCILS

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

We have a small number of original as new, from period stock, slate pencils and are offering them here individually price for the collector who would like an example to go with a period marking slate. Fashioned from slate mined here in Maine, these pencils are the product of period manufacturing practices in which freshly mined slate slabs were cut into ¼ inch square rods, turned round, cut into 6 inch lengths and hand sharpened. (Not sharpened to a point but left blunt, simply hand cut to a slight taper at one end as one would use the pencil on a slate.) Each pencil is a bit unique with slight variances as evidence of early manufacture. Not a big deal but a common utility in the days of hand carried marking slates and seldom seen in unused condition. A neat period item for the Civil War era personal item collector or writing implement enthusiast without spending a lot of money.
Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
