A pewter plate marking the 222nd anniversary of Faber-Castell. Why 222? As Matthias explained on Bleistift it is an example of Schnapszahle, or “repdigits”— a quality that is sometimes favored and emphasized in German-speaking countries. The plate measures approximately 5 inches in diameter.
There was also a limited edition set of “Jubilator” pencils for the same year.
