A very rare and early pencil sharpener of George V vintage by Asprey & Co. London, the ingenious design features a steel mechanism which takes the pencil vertically, sharpens via the blades, which shave and rotate simultaneously, with the turning of a wooden handled lever to the rear, with the falling shavings being caught in a drawer beneath. Stamped ASPREY LONDON and bearing hallmarks for 1912. The sharpener is set on a hardwood plinth.
