  1. Hello,

    Do you know DALER ROWNEY ? A very old british brand, 1783 I think. These pencils are still produced. But they seem to be made in Austria.

  2. Good For The British! I am all for supporting companies who stay local, wherever they are. I regularly use Derwent “Studio” colour pencils in my work as an artist; there are colours there that you can’t get in any other brand. I also have an old set of Cumberland coloured pencils simply called “Derwent”, which I suspect were probably replaced by their newer line called Derwent “Artists”, which I haven’t got around to trying yet.
