This pencil has a great family tree. The beginning dates back to 1906 with the Eagle Mikado 174 long ferrule. The Great Granddaddy of the Sanford Mirado. Please see Eagle Mikado and Eagle Mirado for these models.
Over the years, Turquoise-stamped pencils have been produced by Eagle, then Berol, then Sanford (which snapped up Empire Berol in 1995). Today, Sanford produces iconic products such as Sharpie markers, Uni-Ball pens, and Prismacolor colored pencils. The company is a division of Newell Brands.
