Propelling pencils were first manufactured in the early 19th century and were often one of the components of a ladies chatelaine. A chatelaine was generally carried by the lady of the house and was a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. Each chain was mounted with useful household items such as scissors, thimbles, watches, keys, small purses, stamp cases and pencils.
The propelling pencil measures 7cm and the total length of the chain is 77cm.
