All You Wanted to Know About Pencil Boxes

By Manishpaull Subscribe to RSS | January 25th 2012 | Views:

Pencil boxes have always accompanied students to schools. The concept of keeping a pencil case in the school bag is not a new one. Children have been fantasizing pencil cases ever since they were made available in the shops. They try and discover new and latest ones and also make sure they are different from everybody else’s. A pencil case is a common item for students. They carry pens, pencils, erasers, sharpener and perhaps more, depending on the size. It has been more than 200 years that pencil cases were found.

Like everything else, pencil cases have their history too. In the mid of 1800s, real silver pencil cases were made in London to house telescoping pencils. Throughout the same time period, China produced its wooden and metal pencil cases and even exported them to other parts of the world. In the 1950s, banks at times brought out pencil cases with their name to be given to the clients as gifts.

In 1946, the first patent for a pencil case was approved in the United States. This patent was given to Verona Pearl Amoth, who also happened to have invented many other associated inventions, one of them which is replaceable erasers for pencils. Amoth made her pencil case to keep pencils from trying holes in garments and also to guard the points of the pencils. On October 12, 1944, she applied for her patent application for the All-Purpose Utility Pencil Case, and then the patent was finally approved on December 24, 1946.

The first pencil case that was made by Amoth was designed to hold six pencils. There was a hole for every pencil that could be inserted. There were also slots in the end of the case which made it easier for the erasers to remain sticking out from the case. In the recent times, pencil cases mostly come under two categories. They are either used by students to carry their pencils, pens, erasers and other writing accessories to school, or they are used to guard comfort or high-end pens. Many colorful and trendy pencil cases have also dominated the market and have almost replaced the pencil cases that were used to be there in the market.
