Yard O Led started making pencils in 1934 and rapidly became established as a market leader.
This pencil, a Yard O Led 'De luxe' was produced in the 1960s in Birmingham, England. It is finished in rolled gold with an elaborate wavy line pattern.
The pencil is in superb condition with no real signs of use. It does, however, have a personalisation on the cap as shown and this is reflected in the price.
It is a good sized, very tactile pencil with a smooth extend and retract, cap activated mechanism. It would make a good every day user.
