The legacy unveals from the idea of enclosing a thin graphite lead in a wooden casing was several hundred years old; it was not new when the ancestors of Faber Castell founded a pencil factory in 1761. 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.
