Interesting note:

The Schwan company was founded as Grossberger & Kurz Bleistiftfabrik (pencil company) in Nuremberg in 1855 and acquired by the Schwanhäusser family in 1865. Taking the first part from the family name, the company was renamed Schwan Bleistiftfabrik and started using the swan logo as one of the earliest trademarks.
