Product Description: This Skull pencil topper is made from lead-free pewter and is a 3D model of a pirate’s skull. It is supplied on a 13cm black wooden pencil.
Information: During the Golden Age of Piracy, the skull symbol carried several meanings for pirates. Firstly, it served as a grim warning to potential victims, signalling the pirates' ruthless and deadly intent. Secondly, it symbolised defiance against authority and the establishment, as many pirates were former sailors who rebelled against the harsh conditions imposed by their captains and employers.
