The Mayflower rose is found in many an English country garden. It grew in the garden of James Watt's country house around which the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham was established from 1780, and into which the Yard O Led workshop has recently moved. James Watt is the inventor of the steam engine and seen as the father of the Industrial Revolution. These historic premises are the very centre of the Jewellery Quarter and now the home of the Yard O Led brand.
Also the name of the famed British ship that sailed the first pilgrims across the Atlantic, 'The Mayflower' nods to Yard O Led's increased foreign export, today selling into over twenty territories worldwide.
The sterling silver pencil of the Mayflower Edition is unique to the YOL collection, with no clip and therefore a lighter feel to match its delicate pattern. A solitary rose bud is centred along a bed of leaves. Hand chased, these pencils will be numbered on their caps, while the ball-pen's traditional numbered clip adds gravitas to its wreath of rose buds and leaves entwined around the barrel.
