Eberhard Faber Mongol 481 Drawing Pencil
Eberhard Faber Pencil Co., Brooklyn, New York
Eberhard Faber’s Mongol pencil was originally the company’s high grade drawing pencil. It must not have achieved the expected success because sometime between 1914 and 1920 the Van Dyke
drawing pencil succeeded it. The Mongol continued to be produced as an office pencil and whether or not the Mongol drawing version was ever out of production is unknown to me. In any case, a Mongol drawing pencil was available in the 1960s as evidenced by the Mongol 481 shown below.
