Medford, MA: G. Rappoli, Inc., nd, c. 1950. Original edition. Mechanical pencil. Antique mechanical pencil. "G. Rappoli, Inc. Manufacturers of Concrete Blocks and Cinder Blocks 293 Harvard St. Medford, Mass. Tel. EXport 6-3995 & EXport 6-8624" Very Good, but not as a functioning pencil. Item #20570
This charming pencil has a transparent end cap filled with a yellow liquid that allows a tiny cinder block suspended in the liquid to move back and forth as you rock the pencil. The pencil pulls apart, revealing an eraser hidden inside the barrel. It does not appear to be functional as a pencil, but it's a wonderful piece of advertising history.
