A most unusual and wonderful piece of history for one of the finest pencil makers, Venus Pencils. At the bottom of this page, a brief history of the company will be included.
The glazed cabinet made from Oak would have been used to display and dispense the pencils in a retail environment. The top is lucky enough to have retained the glazing with gold reverse painted details of the variety and grades of pencils contained in each compartment.
The underside shows the remains of the Venus label. The showcase is in excellent condition and of interest to collectors of writing boxes or associated writing instruments. 12 1/2" x 9 1/2" x 3 1/4".
