About Wallace Pencil Co.

Founded in 1915, St. Louis-based Wallace Pencil Company was a prolific producer of pencils before being acquired by Dixon in the 1980s. According to the Smithsonian, "By 1979 it sold 120 million pencils per year. Before the 1950s, the firm packaged some of these pencils, such as its Motif line, in metal tins."
