Item description an all-silver scabbard reversible buttonhook & case by S MORDAN & CO, established in 1870 at 41/43 City Road, London. It is marked with the S Mordan name and small assay marks on the buttonhook reversible but both are rubbed

Sampson Mordan (1790 – 9 April 1843) was a British silversmith and a co-inventor of the first patented mechanical pencil. During his youth, he was an apprentice of the inventor and locksmith Joseph Bramah, who patented the first elastic ink reservoir for a fountain pen.

In 1822, Mordan and his co-inventor John Isaac Hawkins filed the first patent in Great Britain for a metal pencil with an internal mechanism for propelling the graphite "lead" shaft forward during use, as an improvement on the less complex leadholders that merely clutched the pencil lead to hold it into a single position

Mordan silver  articles are much prized.

Dimensions 3 and 3/8 inches closed
Condition slight bruise to the plain cartouche but otherwise good original
