Brand: Schwan Bleistift Fabrik
Made in: Germany
Interesting Schwan pencil with a Grossberger & Kurz mark on it. This leads me to believe Grossberger & Kurz could be a smaller stationary company in Germany. 2020 Update: We now know that Grossberger and Kurz predates the Schwan Bleistife Farbrik.
Many of the larger and well known European pencil companies opened up a franchise in the USA. For example, The House of Faber: A.W., Eberhard, & Johann. It appears that Schwan did the same, using the American spelling of Swan on its pencils manufactured in the U.S. as well as some made in Germany.
