In 2011 Faber-Castell released the 250th Anniversary Limited Edition Art & Graphic Wood Case Set. The special edition commemorated the milestone anniversary of the company.
The set included the complete color range of Polychromos Color Pencils, Albrecht Dürer Watercolor Pencils, Polychromos Pastel Crayons, Pitt Pastel Crayons as well as Charcoal, Graphite and Monochrome products. The product was housed in an attractive wenge wood case with slide out drawers and brushed nickel hardware and retailed at $1,700.00.
A total of 1,761 cases were made available worldwide, a nod to the year Faber-Castell was founded - 1761. It came with a certificate and a serial number.
As you can imagine, this impressive collection sold out quickly and is no longer available.
