Absolutely new without sharpening or even taken out of the box! The Vintage set is able to be set up in the box and opened for use. The plastic guard is also included! This is a very unusual and nice Vintage set as a gift or remembrance to those that worked with this type of set in the 1990's!
It was the mid 90s when I was first introduced to colored pencil. Here in the US Prismacolor has had a reputation for being the best colored pencil out there.Always the Standard Prismacolor soft lead Professional Art Pencils are available in the 1990's color range to meet the needs of creative artists. The creamy smooth texture, extra thick leads and permanent pigments give the brilliant, moisture-proof lay-down required by students and professionals. Colors are easily blended on almost any surface including paper, vellum, wood and plastic film for an infinite variety of hues and shades. This pencil is far superior to the ones they produce now. They do not splinter with sharpening or break close to the lead, they used a softer more fine grained wood for these vintage pencils... That is why it is listed as vintage! Far better quality and not a huge higher price! Well worth the extra expense! For less headaches and more work getting done. An Artist needs a great tool set.
