Fun Quiz

What do you think this is?  Clue: It’s not about pens though it came to me in a batch of pens.  The lucky winner will get a Pilot Parallel Calligraphy Pen.

 

 

***Edited to add*** We have a winner!  This is a universal watch winder, circa 1840.  I have enjoyed all of your guesses!

    Is it a winder for an old-style pocket/fob watch?

  2. Hello Deb

    It looks like what I would call a hand drill or multi tool. With a variety of different drill/driver heads stored in the barrel?

    Googling John S. Birch leads fairly quickly to parents for improvement to watch winding keys – I see someone beat me to it though. Enjoy the pen.

  4. Looks like a clutch pencil similar to a modern Mars Staedler.
