J. Thoreau & Co. By John Thoreau & Co.

 
   

Pencil details

Brand: John Thoreau & Co.

Type: No ferrule

Made in: Concord, Mass

Interesting note:

This particular pencil comes to me by way of a large Victorian in West Roxbury, Massachusettss. Mounted as such and who knows for how long. The pencil is circa 1830's.

According to the Concord Museum there are three known printings on the pencils: J. Thoreau & Son Concord Mass"; one is stamped "John Thoreau" and one is stamped "JThoreau & Co.", as seen above.
