It was only when the great great grandfather of Baron Lothar von Faber, who took over the family firm in 1839, was the first to turn the pencil into a genuity quality product of functionality and the world's First Brand Name writing implement.
Standards for the length, diameter and hardness of pencils; standards which apply till today. He was credited for creating a series of fascinating products which continued to set an example of Simplicity and Design.
The GrandFather of Count Anton von Faber Castell; Count Alexander zu Castell-Rudenhausen carried on this tradition.
