Empire Vintage Whirl-A-Way Pencil
From the Empire Pencil Corporation, Whirl-A-Way vintage pencils, in superb unused condition, manufactured in the early 1970s. Each pencil is unique, finished with a random dip into marbleized semi-gloss paint. The erasers are in pretty colors but have hardened with time. No. 2 graphite grade.
Empire Pencil merged with and was acquired by several companies since its founding in 1900, and at one time was owned by the family who founded Hasbro; in a best-of-both-worlds situation, little toys were included in Empire's pencil boxes.
Single pencil, unsharpened
