Based in Portugal, Viarco has been making quality pencils since 1907. These pencils are still made using traditional methods and tools, just as they were in the early twentieth century. The packaging is also a faithful recreation of the packaging used between 1940 and 1960. The limited edition vintage design is used to tell the story of the flagship brand that views simplicity as a representation of its identity.
The Viarco Vintage 272D Copying Pencil is a faithful recreation of a traditional copying pencil. Copying pencils were popular in WWI and were used to quickly make copies of documents. The purple dye in the pencil core makes it possible to transfer writing onto a thin, damp piece of paper.
