Vintage Pencils

MECHANICAL PENCILS HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED SINCE THE EARLY 19TH CENTURY. THE FIRST MOST LIKELY MADE BY HAWKINS AND MORDEN. EARLY EXAMPLES BEING EXTREMELY DECORATIVE AND MADE USING PRECIOUS METALS AND SOME WITH SEMI PRECIOUS STONES.

EARLY SLIDE PENCILS ARE MUCH SOUGHT AFTER BY COLLECTORS

MOST FOUNTAIN PEN COMPANIES ISSUED MATCHING PENCILS FROM THE EARLY 1920’S AND SOME ARE MUCH RARER THAN THE PENS. A MAJOR EXAMPLE BEING WAHL EVERSHARP

THE MID TO LATE 20TH CENTURY WAS DOMINATED BY YARD O LED (HAVING WORKED WITH MORDEN AND BAKER FROM THE 1930’S EVENTUALLY ACQUIRING THE COMPANY IN THE 1950’S)

VINTAGE PENCILS ARE HIGHLY COLLECTABLE AND ARE STILL REASONABLY PRICED
