Fanindra Nath Gooptu was the proprietor of this company from the Beliaghata region of Calcutta, India.  The second image is of a used example with a slightly different design.  Oddly enough hand sharpened on the wrong end!

About F.N. Gooptu & Co.

An Indian company founded in the 1920s. Here’s an interesting quote from August 28, 1925: “F. N. GOOPTU & CO., It has been a great pleasure to me to be able to visit this pencil and penholder factory. I was delighted to be informed some of the machines were designed and made in this factory. I wish this national enterprise every success.” — M.K. Gandhi
