Charming and beautifully fashioned silver novelty pencil in the form of a pig which turns into a propelling pencil when you pull the pigs tail out.

The pig is not hallmarked but the maker's mark 'S Mordan & Co' is stamped on the tail and is visible when retracted.

A suspension ring is affixed to the body of the pig.
