Cedar Pencils, imported from London, were introduced to colonial merchants in the early eighteenth-century. These pencils were made by placing a long cylinder of lead between two pieces of glued cedar. Before they imported cedar pencils, the early colonists used heavy pencils consisting of powdered graphite mixed with clay. The imported pencils were much easier to hold and use. They were unfinished and did not have erasers like today's pencils. A knife was used to sharpen a point on one end of the pencil.
These cedar pencils contain NO actual lead. SET OF FIVE PENCILS INCLUDED.
