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