Rare Gooptu. Fanindra Nath Gooptu was the proprietor of this company from the Beliaghata region of Calcutta, India. Best the August heat with my first sale!
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
