Souvenir of Havana Cuba 4-1/2" burnt orange butterscotch Bakelite combination pencil pocketknife is in fine and perfect working condition. Excellent functioning pencil but the lead is absent. The mechanical tip is nickel. Shaped like a baseball bat, one handle is plain and the obverse handle is marked in gold leaf paint, "Souvenir of Habana". The gold is somewhat worn but still quite legible. The blade is unmarked and unsharpened with good snap but is oxidized and has some mild rust along the length. It retains it's original factory edge. The stanhope image is a clear view of an early 20th century topless nude woman. The stanhope lens microphoto is marked "Made in France" along the lower right side.

This pocketknife pencil combination tool is in very fine condition and though it has no manufacturer markings, it was made by Palmax of Solingen Germany between the times of 1890-1915. It is a nice collectible piece and would be an important piece in any pocketknife, stanhope, baseball, Cuba, or Pencil collection.
