Made in: Germany
Truth be told I don't know where to categorize this pencil as modern or vintage. I've got several similar Faber Castell's. Main reason I suppose is that they are possibly still making these in South America. At least this one is marked Germany!
German-based Faber-Castell is one of the oldest industrial companies in the world. Originally established in 1761 by the cabinet maker Kaspar Faber (1730-1784), the company was at that time known as A.W. Faber. In 1900, when Lothar Faber’s granddaughter married a count of Castell, the A.W. Faber enterprise was renamed to Faber-Castell. Faber-Castell USA, part of the Faber-Castell family of companies, is based in Cleveland, Ohio.
