Polychromos Color Pencil - Metal Case with 12 Colors

Faber-Castell 211001 - 111 Years Edition

111 Years Polychromos

Polychromos: a coloured pencil praised by prominent artists and creative minds from Karl Lagerfeld to Ferdinand Porsche, enjoying unrivalled popularity with anyone who loves creating with colour. And the pencil has been on the market for an impressive 111 years. Faber-Castell has come up with something really special to mark this extraordinary anniversary: a limited anniversary edition.

We are going back to 1908 when the Polychromos was "born". It was Alexander Graf von Faber-Castell who came up with the idea for this new pencil product range. The main challenge when manufacturing these pencils was to guarantee the lightfastness of the leads. It took a lot of experimenting to achieve a satisfactory result. Finally, a round polished pencil encased in cedar wood was produced in 60 colours, from Opaque white and Mountain blue, Saturn red and Van-Dyck-brown, to ivory black.

Faber-Castell found just what they needed in old product catalogues: presented as a new addition, the Polychromos is offered well-sorted in different packaging and advertised with the colourful image of a pectacular sunrise - the symbol for the start of a new era!

The Polychromos did not disappoint. Like the green "Castell" pencil launched just a few years before, the model developed into a real classic that is regarded among the top products to this day. For the anniversary edition, we have chosen a metal-cased version in four different sizes and 36 colours. Have they simply filled these cases with the modern products? Of course not!The product stamping has also changed over time. To reflect the historic original, we have used the former stamp design.

    • 1. opaque white
    • 5. light cadmium yellow
    • 9. orange
    • 14. May green
