Vintage Dixon Thinex Blueprint Vermillion 371 Colored Pencil

Vintage

This vintage pencil -- in superb unused condition -- with its smooth-writing, bright orange lead, was originally developed for architects to make notations on blueprints.

The Dixon Ticonderoga Company is one of the oldest corporations in America as well as one of the first pencil manufacturers in the US; Joseph Dixon was the first to mechanize pencil manufacturing. The company's guiding principle has always been "Best of Its Kind" and, in fact, Dixon Ticonderoga pencils are considered to be among the best, if not the best, in the world.

Single pencil, unsharpened
