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.

Even after over a century, the case still contains two spare nibs and three pencil lead fragments, amazing.
