Brand: Royal Sovereign Pencil Co.
Made in: Great Britain
This regular-size pencil has a flattened body and rectangular lead much like a carpenter pencil.
Founded in 1919, the company was formed as a collaboration between two British pencil manufacturers: The House of Arthur Johnson (est. 1803) and E. Wolff & Son (est. 1796). Many Royal Sovereign pencils bare the mark of Arthur Johnson, and if so will have “Made by The Royal Sov.” imprinted on the reverse of the pencil. Royal Sovereign was acquired by Staedtler in the late 1980s.
