SLATE PENCILS

Antique set of four pencils

  

(Second-hand items)

  

Portugal

  

A set of four pencils made of natural slate from Portugal. Slate pencils were used to write on a slate in schools before paper and exercise books were readily available.

  

​​​​​​​Slate pencils were in use in the 19thcentury and still used in some UK schools as late as the 1930s. They are thinner than a lead pencil. These examples are partially wrapped in coloured patterned paper.
