Crayon Holders

I have been collecting children’s wooden toys for almost 20 years.  I especially like American toys made between 1920-1940.  In 2002, I was at a toy show and it was love at first sight.  In front of me was a colorful collection of children's wooden crayon holders that the children would take to school.  These crayon holders would often only hold 5-10 crayons.  Each crayon holder was hand painted so that I found that no two crayon holders were exactly alike.  This collection continues to grow.  They now total 70+ and I have them proudly displayed in my Toy Room.  I keep adding to this collection when I find a version I do not already have.   Richard Mueller email: home1@rpmpizza.com cell:231-675-3189

 

        


These dog crayon holders still have their Mfg. tag.  Here are the tags for the 3 dogs above.

 

 

In doing my research on Crayon Holders, I came across a website devoted to Crayons and Crayon history.  Ed Welter is the Crayon Historian and owner of www.crayoncollecting.com website.  The link is:  http://munsell.com/color-blog/crayon-color-history-collecting-ed-welter/
