VERY NICE Vintage 1930s Wolff's, branded as ROYAL SOVEREIGN British Made Pencil Tin

Cambridge, Cambridgeshire £6.00
32 days ago


I am starting to sell some of my childhood treasures from my parent’s attic and this is a really nice, empty pencil box / tin. It has sat in a dry attic for over 40 years! I think the condition is pretty good (see photos).

It dates from the 1930s and was made by Wolff's, branded as ROYAL SOVEREIGN British Made Pencils, The Royal Sovereign Pencil Company Limited, and showing the lion of the British Empire. The tin also bears a printed Royal seal, stating “By Royal Appointment to the late King George V” dating this to 1936, I believe.

The lid shows the lion and pencil mark notes that 'Wolff's - Makers Pencils in Great Britain since 1796” as well as "Factories at Pontyclun, Glamorgan and Sydney, NSW, Australia". This tin spent its whole life in the Pontyclun, South Wales area, near the factory.

Size: 7.25 x 2 inches/ 18.5 x 5 cm
Height: 0.75 inch/ 2 cm

It’s available for collection in the Cambridge area, but I would also be willing to post it, providing the buyer pays upfront, including postage costs. The buyer is free to select whatever form of postage is desired and I will package it properly.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to ask any questions or for additional pics.
