An attractive Mauve and Gold Paper Label claims that these are :
BEST BLACK LEAD PENCILS FOR DRAWING AND OFFICE
FAR EAST STATIONERY WORKS MADE IN HONG KONG
The pencils are 18cm long and have FAR EAST MADE IN HONG KONG RAINBOW COLOURS printed on them in silver.
Just a tad misleading as all the leads are ...Red.
These original bundles of 12 pencils are tied with string at both ends.
I found a few boxes of these in an old warehouse I cleared.
