Vintage Pencils

The image above shows a selection of pencil cases and pen holder as appeared in the Army & Navy stores catalogue dated 1907 (Edwardian period), although many of these items would have been produced in the earlier Victorian period.

Lead pencils are made of graphite, first discovered in the reign of Elizabeth I in Cumbria, England, where a new industry started with the mining and extraction of graphite. Later, many pencil cases and mechanical pencils were developed and manufactured in various materials including nickel plate, silver and gold.
