A.W. Faber “Winner” Techno-Tone Drawing Pencil
A.W. Faber-Castell Pencil Co., Newark , New Jersey, USA
A.W. Faber’s “Winner” Techno-Tone pencils were originally a line of colored pencils, but when WWII disrupted the supply the popular German A.W. Faber Castell
line of drawing pencils, A.W. Faber in the U.S.A. introduced a graphite version of the “Winner”
to replace the Castell. After the war, the US “House of Faber” re-established business ties with the German parent company and Castell pencils were re-introduced into the USA. This Post-WWII Castell advertisement
celebrated its return as a U.S.-made pencil with imported German lead.
