A sterling silver and tortoiseshell notebook holder with a rolled silver 'Yard-O-Led' pencil, fully hallmarked for London, 1922. The maker's mark is stamped 'FM', which is possibly Francis Webb although they are usually Birmingham based. The notepad has 'Asprey London' stamped in gilt to the rear leather.
The notebook has a tortoiseshell top inlaid with a delicate sterling silver design. The top lifts to reveal a raised maroon leather interior which continues to the sides and back.
The notebook has some marks commensurate with age, particularly to the maroon leather in places, but generally remains in a very good condition throughout.
A very attractive piece.
