1940s Wartime CEDAR WOOD PENCILS with Tanks and Planes - Bundle of 12

£6.00
Most unusual paper label on this vintage bundle of 12 pencils.
It shows tanks and planes on one side and on the other claims :
CEDAR WOOD PENCILS  THEY WRITE BETTER THEY SHARPEN BETTER AND SERVE BEST
Also printed on the label is 
FAR EAST STATIONERY WORKS
and
MADE IN HONG KONG
The pencils are 18cm long, have blue leads and printed on the shaft in gold is :
FAR EAST MADE IN HONG KONG  RAINBOW COLOURS.
The original bundle of 12 pencils is tied with string at both ends.
I found these in rather battered old boxes (plain) in a long deserted wholesalers warehouse.
Some of the pencils have the odd nick from the end, the labels have the odd scratch or tear and the 
pencils are rather dusty...even though the boxes they were found in were still tied up tightly with string !
