Brand: J.S. Staedtler
Made in: Germany
Not exactly sure why some pencils are marked Bavaria and some Germany. The top two pencils are considered the star of the show, if only in my eyes! NOTE: The bottom Germany made model is available for purchase here.
Long before J.S. Staedtler founded his pencil making factory within Nuremberg’s old city walls back in 1835, the STAEDTLER family had been hand-making this well-loved writing instrument for generations already. In fact, the roots can be traced back to 1662, the year in which first references to Friedrich Staedtler as a pencil-making craftsman were made in the city annals.
