A Flash of Style from the House of Faber

I paid more than I could justify for this one in an online auction:


That great green lizard-skin celluloid is really eye catching, and the chrome accents really set this one apart nicely.


It’s an Eberhard Faber, a brand I’ve always liked but which I have been even more in tune with since that series of articles I posted detailing the company’s history.  The celluloid is a little reminiscent of some of those pencils in the Permapoint series, but a little brighter.  It’s just something fun to look at on a lazy winter’s Sunday.
