History

 

The Derwent Cumberland Pencil Co. started in 1832 and had numerous owners over the course of its 180 year history.  It officially became the Cumberland Pencil Co. in 1916.  They introduced the Lakeland products in the 1930s.  Most of their production focused on pencils but in the 1970s they produced some crayon products under that Lakeland line.  Only a few examples of their products are known.  The company continues to this day but no longer produces crayon products..
