    Default Desk accessories-- the hanging pencil

    Has anyone else noticed that in old movies (1920s and 30s) there are often on working office desks, a kind of contraption composed of a metal antenna or wire, from which is suspended a pencil on a string? Does anyone here know what those were called, how they were used, or perhaps has used one themselves?

    It's not the same because it doesn't hang, but you can stick a pencil in it's tail
