Brand: J.S. Staedtler
Made in: Germany
Picked these up just the other day. The Mars Lumograph is a flagship line of drawing pencils for many decades by J.S. Staedtler and recognized by its blue color. This fairly new-to-the-market black Mars Lumograph really got my attention.
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.
