Brand: Johann Faber
This is an interesting pencil. Received this in a nice little set out of London. While the country is not indicated, Johann Faber is out of Germany, and more specifically on some of the older ones it will say Bavaria.
Johann Faber was one of two brothers who spun off their own pencil brands from the Stein, Germany-based A.W. Faber Pencil Company in the second half of the 19th century. (The other, who opened the first American pencil factory, was Eberhard Faber.) Johann left the family business in 1876, however, his company merged with A.W. Faber during the global economic crisis of the late 1920s.
