To celebrate the wedding of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Cumberland Pencil Co. has produced a special presentation box called 'The Majestic'. It's a limited edition of only 500, of which No.1 has been given to the happy couple as a wedding gift.
Made from Maple with a Walnut veneer, the box is filled with a selection of water-soluble pencils and blocks, together with a range of accessories. To mark the occasion, Derwent has commissioned artist Angela Gaughan-Owens to draw a portrait of the wedding couple using the pencils featured in the box. A reproduction of the portrait is included within the box, and the original will be on display at the Pencil Museum in Keswick.
