This is something known as a “magic pencil,” which projects and retracts the pencil nozzle by pulling the ring from the back. When retracted, it looks like a simple pendant. Early Victorian pencils were sometimes very small, and worn on chatelaines, along with other small tools and trinkets, like scissors, sewing tools, and perfume bottles. 

This fun piece features enamel depicting a boy, indicating this was perhaps a thoughtful gift. Playful and functional, this pencil/pendant is a great addition to any historical collection and is guaranteed to make you look cooler.
