Very interesting, some of these ads have many eastern elements: crane, shrimp, lantern etc, the second last has both (Persian?) script and French on it. Does it imply some Tiger pencils were exported to foreign market?
Yes, the „Tiger“ pencil has been exported. As far as I know there were even pencils from large German manufacturers with names that have been adapted to the foreign market or with symbolic character like the „Dragon“ pencil. I think the „Alligator“ from Johann Faber and Faber-Castell belongs to that category too – it looks like it hasn’t been sold in Germany.
By the way, I am not sure if all these graphics are ads; some may have been part of the packaging.
